Protective clothing for Firefighters - Changes are here!

Updates outlined below on requirements and test methods for protective clothing used for structural firefighting.

Standards Australia has released AS 4967:2019 to supersede AS/NZS 4967:2009.
AWTA Product Testing as testing interest representatives on SF049 (Firefighters Personal Protective Equipment - Standards Committee), has been involved in the development of this standard and is able to offer testing for all additional protective clothing requirements such as Nickel release, Chromium content and Azo dyes. We offer testing out of our Melbourne or China laboratories.
