EN355 ENERGY ABSORBER

Component of a fall arrest equipment, which guarantees the stop of a fall from a height in safety by reducing the impact of the shock.

WARNING: If we associate a lanyard energy absorber, the total length of the entire device must not exceed 2 m.

Categorisation

Taking into account the level of risk covered, the Regulation defines the PPE categories and determines the various manufacturer’s obligations:
PPE category 1: Protection against minor risks.
PPE category 2: All PPE that are not category 1 or 3.
PPE category 3: Protection against disability or fatality

THE REGULATION (European Union)

Its objective is to develop test methods and requirements in the form of standards defining the technical specifications of products. Some of them, mostly requirements standards, are harmonised with
EU Regulation 2016/425. Compliance with these harmonised standards gives an assurance of compliance with the requirements of EU Regulation 2016/425

CERTIFICATION PROCEDURE

• Category 1 PPE: Evaluation of conformity by the manufacturer (Module A)

• PPE category 2 and 3: EU type examination of the PPE (Module B) by a notified independent body for which compliance (with Regulation EU 2016/425) is verified using standards that are in accordance
with the regulation. Issuance of the EU Type Examination Certificate (confidential document).
• PPE category 1, 2 and 3: CE marking on the product.
• PPE category 3: Control by a notified independent body that ensures compliance of the manufacture with the examined PPE:
- either monitoring of conformity to the type based on the internal control of production and supervised controls of the product at random intervals (Module C2),
- or conformity to the type based on quality assurance of the production method (Module D).
• PPE category 1, 2 and 3: Writing by the manufacturer of the EU Compliance Declaration which proves the compliance of the PPE with Regulation EU 2016/425 to the distributor and the market
enforcement authorities.
The product sheet, the user instructions and the Declaration of Conformity are available online on our website: www.deltaplus.eu

Type B: Anchor device with one or more stationary anchor points without the need of a structural anchor.
Type C - NON PPE : Anchor device employing a flexible anchor line with maximum deviation of 15°.
Type D - NON PPE : Anchor device employing a rigid anchor line with maximum deviation of 15°.
Type E: Anchor device for use on surfaces with a maximum slope of 5°.

EN 14058

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AGAINST COOL ENVIRONMENTS

This standard specifies the requirements and performance test methods for protective garments (vests, jackets, coats, trousers) against cool environments.

These garments are for use in moderate low temperatures (-5°C and over) to protect against local body cooling. Not only for outdoor use such as in the construction industry; may also be used for indoor activities, such as in the food processing industry.

These garments are not always necessarily made of air impermeable or watertight materials.

Therefore, in this European standard, these requirements are optional.

X : Class of heat resistance, Rct

X : Class of air permeability, AP

X : /cler of the garment (Optional)

X : Class of resistance to water penetration WP (Optional)

EN342 - PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AGAINST COLD

This standard specifies the requirements and performance test methods for protective clothing against cold at temperatures lower than -5°C (cold store / extreme cold workers).

There are two types of garment :

Garments: covering part of the body, e.g. parka, jacket, coat.

Suits: covering the whole body (trunk + legs), e.g. coveralls, parka & dungarees.

X (undergarment B/C/R) : /cler of the garment

EN13034 - PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AGAINST LIQUID CHEMICALS

Requirements for chemical protection clothing offering limited performance against liquid chemical products (type 6 equipment), including clothing for partial body protection (Type PB [6]).


This standard sets out the minimum requirements for limited use and reusable limited performance chemical protective clothing. Limited use chemical protective clothing is intended for use in cases of a potential exposure to light sprays, liquid aerosols or lowpressure, low-volume splashes, against which a complete liquid permeation barrier (at the molecular level) is not required.

EN ISO 20471

HIGH VISIBILITY CLOTHING

This standard specifies the requirements for protective clothing aiming to signal the presence of the wearer visually, so that he may be detected and seen in hazardous situations, in all conditions of daylight, and night under illumination of car headlights.

There are three classes of high-visibility clothing. Each class must have minimum surfaces of visible material constituting the garment; the higher the class, the more visible the garment:

 

  Class 3 Class 2 Class 1
Background material (Fluorescent) 0,80 m² 0,50 m² 0,14 m²
Retroreflective material (Bands) 0,20 m² 0,13 m² 0,10 m²

EN ISO 27065 - PROTECTIVE CLOTHING WORN BY OPERATORS APPLYING LIQUID PESTICIDES

Level C1 protective clothing is suitable when the potential risk is relatively low. Level C1 protective clothing provides the minimum protection and is not suitable for the handling of concentrated pesticide formulations. It can be used as basic protective clothing with other items when the potential risk is relatively higher.


Level C2 protective clothing, including partial body protection, is suitable when it has been determined that the protection required is greater than that provided by level C1 protective clothing. C2 level protective clothing generally offers a balance between comfort and protection. This protective clothing is not suitable for the handling of concentrated pesticide formulations. It can be used as basic protective clothing with other items when the potential risk is relatively higher.


Level C3 protective clothing, including partial body protection, is suitable when it has been determined that the potential risk is high. For level C3 protective clothing, precautionary measures, such as short-term use, are necessary, as these clothing can generate excessive heat, leading to exhaustion and heat stress. Level C3 protective clothing, including partial body protection, is suitable for the handling of diluted pesticides as well as concentrated pesticides.


The risk incurred should be assessed according to the toxicity of the phytosanitary product (refer to its labelling) and the degree of exposure to the operator. For example, it is easy to understand that the degree of operator exposure will be much higher with aerial spraying towed by an open cab tractor than with manual trigger spraying.
