This European Standard specifies the requirements and testing for PPE footwear used as electrical insulating footwear and overboots that provide protection of the worker against electric shock and used for working live or close to live parts on installations up to 36 000 V AC or 25 000 V DC. The products designed and manufactured according to this standard contribute to the safety of the users provided they are used by skilled persons, in accordance with safe methods of work and the instructions for use. Antistatic, electrical shock resistant and conductive footwear are not covered by this standard. NOTE Part 2 Electrical Shock Resistant Footwear and Part 3 Conductive Footwear for Live Working are in development.

NEW! IEC 61482-2:2018 is available as IEC 61482-2:2018 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition. IEC 61482-2:2018 is applicable to protective clothing used in work where there is the risk of exposure to an electric arc hazard. This document specifies requirements and test methods applicable to materials and garments for protective clothing for electrical workers against the thermal hazards of an electric arc. Electric shock hazard is not covered by this document, which is applicable in combination with standards covering such hazards. Other effects than the thermal effects of an electric arc like noise, light emissions, pressure rise, hot oil, electric shock, the consequences of physical and mental shock or toxic influences are not covered by this document. Protection of eyes, face, head, hands and feet against electric arc hazard is not covered by this document. Requirements and tests to cover electric arc hazards to these parts of the body are under development. Protective clothing for work intentionally using an electric arc, e.g. arc welding, plasma torch, is not covered by this document. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: new definition for ELIM, ATPV and EBT as used in accordance with IEC 61482-1-1:–; new requirements for the thermal stability of the intermediate layers; additional material requirement for volume resistance; new test procedure for the thermal resistance of sewing threads and a new symbol for marking. Key words: Electric Arc, Protective Clothing, Arc Thermal Protection

IEC 60895:2020 is applicable to conductive clothing, worn during live working (especially bare-hand working) on AC and DC electrical installations, to provide electrical continuity between all parts of the clothing and a reduction of electric field inside the clothing. This document is applicable to conductive clothing assembled from a conductive garment (jackets and trousers or coveralls forming a one-piece garment) and from conductive component parts (gloves, hoods or helmets, shoes or boots, overshoe socks and socks) in electrical systems with nominal voltage up to 1 000 kV AC and up to ±800 kV DC. This document does not indicate values of protection from the effects of the electric arc, because any value indicated would not guarantee the necessary protection from the effects of electric arcs, or the operator would need to wear very heavy and rigid conductive clothing, which would not allow the execution of the work in safety. The products designed and manufactured according to this document contribute to the safety of the users provided they are used by persons trained for the work, in accordance with the live working methods and the instructions for use. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2002. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) increase of the use up to 1 000 kV AC and ±800 kV DC; b) introduction of two classes of conductive clothing with different electrical requirements; c) revision of the electrical requirements of conductive clothing; d) definition of specific resistance values for each component part of the conductive clothing; e) introduction of conductive helmet and conductive scarf as component parts of conductive clothing; f) introduction of mechanical requirements and new tests for fabrics; g) update of the cleaning test procedures; h) revision of the efficiency test of the conductive clothing to improve the feasibility and repeatability; i) preparation of the elements of classification of defects, and general application of IEC 61318:2007; j) the normative Annex B for the classification of tests has been replaced by normative Annex C for the general type tests procedure, the normative Annex D for the classification of defects and the informative Annex E providing the justification for the classification of defects; k) the normative Annex C on sampling procedure has been deleted (not applicable according to IEC 61318:2007); l) modification of the recommended frequency of the periodic tests.

This standard is applicable to electrical insulating protective clothing used by skilled persons when they are working on or near live parts of low voltage installations at nominal voltages up to 500 V a.c. or 750 V d.c. The purpose of this clothing when used in conjunction with other PPE, such as boots and gloves etc., is to prevent dangerous current from passing through persons when there is a risk of unintentional contact with several live parts located in and around the working area. Where the risk of unintentional contact with live parts is restricted e.g. with live parts in front of the worker, the wearing of this clothing is not essential. NOTE: Some restrictions on the use of this clothing may exist in areas with hot climatic conditions, for example.
