Guide for the selection of personal protective equipment for emergency first responders by Alim Ahmed Fatah( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The primary purpose of the Guide for the Selection of Personal Protective Equipment for Emergency First Responders is to provide emergency first responders with information to aid them in the selection of PPE, both percutaneous (skin) protection and respiratory protection. PPE providing percutaneous protection addressed in this guide includes protective ensembles, footwear, and gloves. PPE providing respiratory protection from CBRN threats addressed in this guide includes air-purifying respirators (APRs), powered air-purifying respirators (PAPRs), self-contained atmosphere supplying respirators (SCBAs), and escape respirators. The guide is intended to be more practical than technical and provides information on a variety of factors that should be considered when purchasing and using PPE, including duration of protection, dexterity/mobility (how cumbersome is the equipment), cleanability, and use/reuse, to name a few. The remainder of this guide is divided into several sections. Section 2 presents background information about the function, components, protection levels, and certification standards associated with PPE. Section 3 provides an introduction to chemical agents, toxic industrial chemicals/materials (TICs/TIMs), biological agents, and radiological/nuclear agents. Specifically, it discusses CBRN agents by providing overviews, physical and chemical properties, routes of entry, and symptoms. It also discusses the 98 TICs/TIMs that are considered in this guide. Section 4 presents an overview of percutaneous protection and is divided into several subsections that focus on ensembles, boot, and gloves. Section 5 presents an overview of respiratory protection equipment and is divided into several subsections that focus on APRs, PAPRs, SCBAs, and escape respirators."--Document home page

GrayLIT Network : a science portal of technical reports( )

in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As described on the "About this Site" page, the GrayLIT Network "is a portal for technical report information generated through federally funded research and development projects." Such "grey" literature, although prolific and of great scientific value, is generally not distributed through conventional publication channels. The GrayLit Network allows patrons to search multiple government databases to retrieve this elusive scientific information. Among the indexed agencies are Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Defense (DOD), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Search results are based on searches of bibliographic records for some databases and full text searching ofothers depending on the search capabilities of the individual sites. However, the full text of all reports is available, making this an excellent resource for researchers needing this specialized information."--Reviewed Mar. 2005, "Best Free Reference Web Sites 2005," RUSA Quarterly, Fall 2005.
