Staff engaged in the diagnosis and care of people suffering or ill, particularly in the medical industry, may be exposed to biological fluids that may spread disease. Such diseases may present major life and safety threats owing to a broad spectrum of microorganisms. This refers in particular to blood-borne viruses triggering hepatitis [HBV and hepatitis C virus (HCV)] and Supports, [human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)]. Because engineering safeguards can’t remove all exposures, the risk for immediate skin interaction with protective clothes is minimized.
The Universal Norm is intended to secure garments against the intrusion of blood or bodily fluids and associated safety equipment. This checking procedure mainly concerns the efficiency of fabrics (e.g. seams) used for protective garments. This test method does not tackle the nature, structure or interfaces of clothing or other variables that influence the overall security provided by the protective clothing. Health fabric fabrics can provide a deterrent to blood, bodily fluids, and other highly contagious items. Other considerations, such as surface tension, viscosity, and polarity, as well as the composition and relative hydrophilicity or the hydrophobicity of the products, can affect the wetting and penetration characteristics.
