Defining PPE Levels

You can work with a limited number of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) levels for clothing classes. Clothing classes for incident energy calculations reference NFPA 70E table 130.5(G).

Note: Refer to the NFPA 70E standard for the proper application of PPE tables.

Customizing Site-Specific Levels of PPE

You can create site-specific levels of PPE in the standard library as shown in the example below.

Note: The program requires the first row in the table (with a minimum of 0 cal/cm2). The minimum energy for Site-Specific Level 2 is set to 0.001 to include all incident energies greater than 0.
