This document is applicable to protectors intended to provide protection against accidental exposure to laser radiation within the wavelength range 180Â nm to 1Â mm. It specifies the requirements, test methods and marking. Protectors intended for adjustment work on lasers are included in the scope of this document and are marked in the same way as other protectors, but selection of appropriate eyewear for a specific application is a choice of the user. Laser protective filters used as viewing windows in laser equipment machinery or incorporated into optical instruments such as operating microscopes and loupes that may be used for deliberate viewing of laser radiation as part of their function are outside the scope of this document. Laser radiation in the wavelength range below 180Â nm is absorbed in air, therefore eye and face protection should not be required. This document is applicable to devices intended for patient protection during medical laser procedures except for treatment in the periorbital area. Guidance on eye protectors for patients (including those used for periorbital treatment) is given in ISO/TRÂ 22463.

This European Standard specifies requirements for construction, design, performance, marking and user information for earmuffs attached to head protection and/or face protection devices, hereinafter referred to as ‘mounted earmuffs’.
In particular, it specifies the sound attenuation of mounted earmuffs, measured in accordance with EN ISO 4869-1.
Because one model of earmuffs designed to be attached to head protection and/or face protection devices can be fitted to a number of other models and sizes, this part of the standard sets out a series of physical and acoustic requirements for earmuffs when fitted to the specified model(s) or size(s) of head protection and/or face protection device.
All requirements apply to earmuffs fitted to one of the specified models or sizes of head protection and/or face protection device (the basic combination). An abbreviated set of requirements apply applies to the same model of earmuffs when fitted to the other specified models or sizes of head protection and/or face protection device (the supplementary combinations).
Information shall be given on the range of models of carriers tested with the earmuffs which satisfies this European Standard.
Ergonomic aspects are addressed by taking into account, within the requirements, the interaction between the wearer, the device and, where possible, the working environment in which the device is likely to be used (see Annex ZA and EN 458).

This document specifies general requirements for eye and face protectors. These protectors are intended to provide protection for the eyes and faces of persons against one or more common occupational hazards such as impacts from flying particles and fragments, optical radiation, dusts, splashing liquids, molten metals, heat, flame, hot solids, harmful gases, vapours and aerosols. Additional requirements for eye and face protectors used during welding and related techniques and for mesh protectors are given in ISO 16321-2 and ISO 16321-3, respectively. This document applies to: — all plano as well as corrective and prescription lensed protectors and components; — those eye and face protectors used for occupational-type tasks that are performed similarly to an occupation, e.g. "do-it-yourself"; — those eye and face protectors used in educational establishments. This document does not apply to: — protectors specifically intended for protection against only solar radiation and used in non- occupational environments for which the ISO 12312 series applies; — protectors for medically prescribed applications (not occupational), e.g. eye protection for severe dry eye, tints prescribed for medical conditions; — patient eye protectors during diagnosis or treatment (e.g. ISO/TR 22463); — protectors for use during medical or e.g. aesthetic applications, e.g. intense light sources (ILS) for which the ISO 12609 series applies; — protectors specifically intended for sports for which the ISO 18527 series applies; — laser protectors; — face protectors intended for live-working to protect against short-circuit electric arcs for which IEC 62819 applies; — protectors intended to protect against ionizing radiation, e.g. X-rays, for which IEC 61331-3 applies.

This document is concerned with active noise reduction (ANR) earmuffs. It specifies the test methods for the determination of the active insertion loss and calculation procedures for deriving the total attenuation. For this aim, the values of sound attenuation in the passive mode also have to be known and are determined according to ISO 4869‑1. These methods are intended for steady noise exposures and are not applicable to noises containing impulsive components. The test methods account for the acoustical interaction between the wearer and the device using measurements of passive (REAT) and active microphone-in-real-ear (MIRE) measurements as specified in ISO 4869‑1 and ISO 11904‑1, respectively.

This document specifies a subjective method for measuring sound attenuation of hearing protectors
at the threshold of hearing. The method is a laboratory method designed to yield reproducible values
under controlled measurement conditions. The values reflect the attenuating characteristics of the
hearing protector only to the extent that users wear the device in the same manner as did the test
subjects.
For a more representative indication of field performance the methods of ISO/TS 4869-5 can be used.
This test method yields data which are collected at low sound pressure levels (close to the threshold
of hearing) but which are also representative of the attenuation values of hearing protectors at higher
sound pressure levels. An exception occurs in the case of amplitude-sensitive hearing protectors for
sound pressure levels above the point at which their level-dependent characteristics become effective.
At those sound pressure levels the method specified in this document is inapplicable, as it will usually
underestimate sound attenuation for these devices.
NOTE Due to masking from physiological noise in the occluded ear tests, sound attenuations below 500 Hz
can be overestimated by a few decibels.

This document specifies three methods (the octave-band, HML and SNR methods) of estimating
the A-weighted sound pressure levels effective when hearing protectors are worn. The methods are
applicable to either the sound pressure level or the equivalent continuous sound pressure level of the
noise. Although primarily intended for steady noise exposures, the methods are also applicable to
noises containing impulsive components. It is possible that these methods could not be suitable for use
with peak sound pressure level measurements.
The octave-band, H, M, L or SNR values are suitable for establishing sound attenuation criteria for
selecting or comparing hearing protectors, and/or setting minimum acceptable sound attenuation
requirements.

This document provides the principles that govern the development of incident type and/or hazard specific test methods and minimum performance requirements for helmets for firefighters while engaged in specific rescue activities. Helmets related to specific rescue activities, such as road traffic crash (RTC) and urban search and rescue (USAR), are documented in individual subclauses of this document. NOTE Further guidance can be found in ISO 18639-1. The purpose of this document is to ensure that minimum performance requirements for incident type and/or hazard specific helmets are designated. This document covers general helmet design, the minimum performance level of the materials used and the methods of test for determining this performance level. It does not cover special helmets for use in other high risk situations such as firefighting. This document does not cover protection for the torso, arms, legs and feet or protection of the hands against other hazards, e.g. chemical, biological, radiation and electrical hazards, except for limited, accidental exposure to fire ground chemicals and contaminated blood or body fluids. Selection of the appropriate system of personal protective equipment, (PPE), including helmets, is dependent on carrying out an effective risk assessment which identifies the hazard to be faced, evaluates the likelihood of those hazards and provides the means of reducing or eliminating these hazards.
