Heat hazards come in several forms:
Accidental exposure to a flame and/or an intense heat source can seriously damage a worker’s health.
To guard against this hazard, it is essential to wear an EN 531 (factor A, B and C) garment based on a fabric which does not propagate flames and limits heat transfer.
Directive 89/686/EEC art. 3.6: Protection against heat or fire
"Personal Protective Equipment designed to protect all or part of the body against the effects of heat or fire must have a heat insulation capability and a mechanical strength appropriate to the foreseeable conditions of use."
