DOE-EM-STD-5503-94
5.4.2.2. Protective Clothing
Level B protective clothing provides a high level of skin protection. It is used when the potential
exists for contact with chemicals and/or radiologically contaminated liquids that could
saturate/penetrate cloth coveralls (e.g., immersion or inundation of contaminants). Also,
potential vapors, fumes, gases, or dusts containing levels of chemicals harmful to skin or capable
of being absorbed through the skin are not anticipated. This class of protection is acceptable for
radiological work activities categorized as "High" involving pressurized or large volume liquids,
or closed system breach (see DOE Radiological Control Manual). Level B protective clothing
includes:
Hooded one-piece non-permeable, chemical resistant outer suit;
Coveralls inner suit(s);
Modest clothing under coveralls (e.g., shorts and T-shirt/long underwear);
Outer chemical resistant work gloves (rated for contaminants) taped to outer suit;
Inner gloves of light weight PVC or latex rubber taped to inner suit (cotton liners
optional);
Chemical resistant steel-toe boots taped to inner suit;
Disposable outer boot covers (booties) taped to outer suit;
Hard hat (as needed); and
Hearing protection (as needed).
5.4.2.3. Other Protective Apparatus
Other protective apparatus which may be used includes:
Cooling unit/system,
Cold weather gear/clothing, and
Protection from biological hazards/pests.
5.4.3. Level C PPE
5.4.3.1. Respiratory Protection
Level C respiratory protection includes an air-purifying respirator, full-face or half-mask,
cartridge- or canister-equipped (MSHA/NIOSH approved).
5.4.3.2. Protective Clothing
Level C protective clothing provides a moderate level of skin protection. It is used when the
potential exists for contact with chemicals and/or radiologically contaminated materials, but
when protection from liquids (chemical and/or radioactive) is not required. It is used when
potential vapors, fumes, gases, or dusts are not suspected of containing levels of chemicals
