Heat hazards come in several forms:
Accidental exposure to flames and/or an intense heat source can seriously damage a worker’s health.
To guard against this risk, it is essential to wear an EN 531 (A/B/C) garment made of a fabric that does not spread flames and that limits heat transfers.
Directive 89/686/EEC, Annex II, Art. 3.6: Protection against heat and/or fire
"PPE designed to protect all or part of the body against the effects of heat and/or fire must possess thermal insulation capacity and mechanical strength appropriate to foreseeable conditions of use."
