Ergonomics - Ergonomics of PPE ensembles

This document can be used to compare the performance of different ensembles as part of any PPE selection process.
This document does not replace the product standards for the certification of individual items of PPE. It specifies the testing of individual items of PPE as an ensemble, so that the interaction between the individual items of PPE can be evaluated and any adverse interactions between the individual items of PPE can be identified.
It specifies requirements for testing by either assessing the performance of a PPE ensemble against a benchmark condition (i.e. benchmark testing) or assessing the performance of two or more PPE ensembles against each other (i.e. comparative testing).
The standard incorporates laboratory as well as field based testing. It can also be used to assess the performance regarding the ergonomics of an ensemble that incorporates an item of PPE that has never before been incorporated into an ensemble.

Ergonomie - Ergonomie von PSA-Ensembles

Dieses Dokument kann verwendet werden, um die Leistung verschiedener Ensembles als Teil eines PSA-Auswahlverfahrens zu vergleichen.
Dieses Dokument ersetzt nicht die Produktnormen für die Zertifizierung einzelner PSA-Produkte. Sie legt die Prüfung einzelner PSA als Ensemble fest, damit die Wechselwirkung zwischen den einzelnen PSA bewertet und nachteilige Wechselwirkungen zwischen den einzelnen PSA erkannt werden können.
Sie legt die Anforderungen an die Prüfung entweder durch die Bewertung der Leistung eines PSA-Ensembles im Vergleich zu einer Referenzbedingung (d. h. Benchmark-Prüfung) oder durch die Bewertung der Leistung von zwei oder mehr PSA-Ensembles im Vergleich zueinander (d. h. Vergleichsprüfung) fest.
Die Norm umfasst sowohl labor- als auch feldbasierte Prüfungen. Sie kann außerdem zur Bewertung der Leistung in Bezug auf die Ergonomie des Ensembles verwendet werden, die ein PPE-Produkt umfasst, das zuvor noch nie in ein Ensemble integriert wurde.

Ergonomie - Ergonomie des ensembles d’EPI

Le présent document peut être utilisé pour comparer les performances de différents ensembles dans le cadre de tout processus de sélection d’EPI.
Le présent document ne remplace pas les normes de produits pour la certification des éléments d’EPI individuels. Il spécifie l’essai des éléments d’EPI individuels en tant qu’ensemble, afin de pouvoir évaluer l’interaction entre les éléments d’EPI individuels et d’identifier toute interaction négative entre les différents éléments d’EPI.
Il spécifie les exigences en matière d’essais, soit en évaluant les performances d’un ensemble d’EPI par rapport à une condition de référence (c’est-à-dire un essai de référence), soit en évaluant les performances de deux ensembles d’EPI ou plus les uns par rapport aux autres (c’est-à-dire un essai comparatif).
La norme prévoit des essais en laboratoire et sur le terrain. Elle peut également être utilisée pour évaluer les performances en matière d’ergonomie d’un ensemble qui comprend un élément d’EPI n’ayant jamais été intégré auparavant dans un ensemble.
