Disposable coverall standard sets specs
The International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) is seeking public comments on its proposed reaffirmation of ANSI/ISEA 101-2014, American National Standard for Limited-Use and Disposable Coveralls – Size and Labeling Requirements.
The document provides requirements for finished dimensions, labeling and packaging for limited-use and disposable coveralls. It also provides guidance on selecting the appropriate garment size for the wearer. Garments covered by the standard are worn in a variety of workplaces including grain and milling operations, automotive repair shops, abrasive blasting sites, food processing facilities and construction and restoration areas.
Public review comments will be accepted from July 19 – September 2, 2019. There is a $10 charge for the public review copy. A copy can be obtained by emailing Cristine Fargo, ISEA’s Vice President, Operations and Technical Services.
In addition, consensus body members in targeted stakeholder groups are still being accepted. These reviewers submit comments and vote on approval of the standard; they are the final authority in determining whether a standard is submitted to ANSI for acceptance as an American National Standard. Consensus panel members are needed in the following categories:
- Producer – A manufacturer of the product covered by the standard or components thereof
- User – An organization that uses, specifies or purchases the product covered by the standard
- Government – An agency or department that has a regulatory or other interest in the product
- General Interest – An organization that has a special interest in this standard due to safety, technical or other requirements or an individual expert with knowledge in the area(s) covered by the standard, but who neither produces nor uses products covered by the standard.
Interested parties should reach out Cristine Fargo for additional information.
