Notes
Title from data sheet. Firefighters and other personnel at hazardous material worksites are subject not only to the dangers associated with hazardous materials, but also to physiologic stresses resulting from the workload imposed by the event, the ambient climatic conditins, and the wearing of fully encapsulating chemical protective clothing. These heat stresses may impose a significant metabolic penalty on the wearer of chemical protective clothing. The United States Fire Administration has identified heat stress as a priority issue, and this videoconference is intended to provide background and guidelines for reducing protective clothing heat stress problems.
