EN ISO 11611 – Protective clothing for welding and related applications

This type of protective clothing is intended to protect the user against spraying (small amounts of molten metal), short-term contact with flame, radiant heat from an electric arc, and to reduce the possibility of electric shock in short-term accidental contact with electrical conductors energized at electrical voltages of approximately 100 V DC under normal welding conditions. Sweat, contamination or other contaminants may affect the level of protection afforded against short-term accidental contact with electrical conductors under voltage during these electrical voltages.

In addition, personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect the head, hands and feet that provide other standards should be worn for adequate overall protection against the risks to which welders are likely to be exposed.
