The NFPA 1999, Standard is for Protective Clothing for Emergency Medical Operations, and we are proud of our continued UL certified NFPA series of jackets and pants. NFPA 1999 offers specific performance criteria for design, performance, testing, documentation, and certification for protection against airborne and liquid-borne pathogens.
The NFPA 1975, Standard is for Emergency Services work uniforms and apparel, and we are proud of our continued UL certified NFPA series of long and short sleeve shirts, station pants, and shorts. NFPA 1975 offers specific performance criteria that involve the flame-resistance of station uniforms and clothing. This standard address uniforms and apparel worn in the station or for more casual wear not the primary uniforms worn by EMTs and fire fighters. The specific requirements are for the design, performance, testing, and certification of emergency service station wear made from thermally stable or flame-resistant materials.
ANSI/ISEA 107-1999 for High-Visibility Safety Apparel
The American National Standard (ANSI) specifies for design, requirements for background and combined-performance retroreflective materials, photometric and physical performance requirements for retroreflective materials, and care labeling for High-Visibility Safety garments.
Background fabrics must be fluorescent yellow-green, fluorescent orange-red or fluorescent red, (the additional colors bright yellow-green, bright orange-red or bright red are acceptable for the CSA standard).
Four classes of high-visibility safety clothing are identified as Class I, Class II, Class III, and Class E, which are increasing level of visibility, depending on the working environment for such things as traffic volume and visual complexity of the areas in which the garments will be worn. All classes must provide the wearer 360º visibility.
First responders and emergency personal are typically required to wear a ANSI 107 Class II or Class III garments on duty. Additional Class E pants, overall, and shorts should be worn with a performance Class II or Class III garment for extra protection in low-light or inclement weather conditions.
CSA Z96-02 for High-Visibility Safety Apparel
The Canadian Standards Association Standard (CSA) specify minimum amounts of background fabrics and retroreflective materials for High-Visibility Safety garments. Background fabrics must be fluorescent yellow-green, fluorescent orange-red or fluorescent red, (bright yellow-green, bright orange-red or bright red colours are acceptable but not recommended for first responders and emergency personal).
Three classes of high-visibility safety clothing are identified as Class 1, 2, and 3 which are increasing level of visibility, depending on the working environment for such things as traffic volume and visual complexity of the areas in which the garments will be worn. All classes must provide the wearer 360º visibility and this is accomplished in a jacket by having the retroreflective striping encircle the torso at the waist, front vertical stripes positioned on the centre of each front shoulder and 'X' positioned on the centre back to run from shoulder to waist at a minimum.
For a user to be Class 3 they must have the Class 1 striping pattern an upper torso of Background fabrics and an additional retroreflective stripe encircles each leg and arm The CSA specification requires that the minimum width of all stripes shall be no less than 50mm for all classes.
