NC State University Webinar Series: Classifications and Testing Requirements for PPE in Medical Environments and Personal Use
12 – 1pm CT
Textile manufacturers have responded to the COVID-19 crisis in unprecedented ways, rapidly retooling production lines to manufacture materials and products for PPE. Many of these companies face challenges from understanding performance requirements and new materials, to navigating a challenging maze of testing requirements and use guidelines.
Learn about the various classifications of PPE and the tests required for each level. FDA and NIOSH testing will be covered for gowns, facemasks, respirators and coveralls, as well as recommended testing for general purpose face coverings.
Speaker: Emiel DenHartog, Director of Graduate Programs, TECS; Associate Director, TPACC
Prof. Emiel DenHartog: He has a Masters’ degree in Experimental Physics from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and PhD in Medical Physics from the Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. After his PhD he went to work for more than 15 years in the Defense research on evaluation and innovation of military protective clothing systems. where he studied modeling human heat exchange in extreme environments. Over time he moved towards the impact of protective clothing on the human body (e.g. Chemical, Biological, Ballistics, camouflage, flame retardance) and became program manager of the protective clothing research for the Ministry of Defense in The Netherlands, also actively collaborating within the EU on research projects as well as contributing to NATO activities around protective clothing.
