    Twenty-two peer-reviewed papers cover the latest information on the performance of protective clothing for government and industrial workers, first responders, and civilians.

    Topics cover:
    • Evaluation of Fire-resistant Clothing Using an Instrumented Mannequin
    • Assessing User Needs and Perceptions of Firefighter PPE
    • Interlaboratory Study of ASTM F2731, Measuring the Transmitted and Stored Energy of Firefighter Protective Clothing Systems
    • NDT Methods to Assess the Level of Damage to Firefighters’ Protective Clothing
    • Protective Clothing for Pesticide Operators
    • Puncture Resistance of Protective Gloves to Needles
