or Vapors. Radioactive and/or Chemical.
Respirator cartridge rated for isotope or chemical
concentration.
Not Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health. Gaseous

TABLE 5-2
Clothing PPE Selection
Hazard
Level of Protection
Potential for skin contact with substances with a high degree of hazard to the
A
skin.
High potential for splash, immersion, or exposure to unexpected vapors, gases,
fumes or dusts that are harmful to, or readily absorbed by the skin.
High levels of radiological contamination.*
Potential for contact with wet, contaminated surfaces/material that can saturate
B
cloth.
Vapors or gases do not contain a high level of chemicals harmful to, or readily
absorbed by, the skin.
Moderate levels radiological contamination.*
Atmospheric contaminants, liquid splashes or other direct contact will not
C
adversely affect, or be absorbed by exposed skin.
Low levels of radiological contamination.*
No anticipated immersion, splashes, or potential for unexpected contact with
D
hazardous levels of any chemicals or radiological contamination.
*
Protective clothing for high, moderate and low radiological contamination roughly corresponds to Levels A, B, C,
and D PPE. However, this may be modified by level of activity and isotope. The appropriate selection should be
made using the DOE Radiological Control Manual.
