Dr. S. Divya | K. Siva Prakash
Abstract: People today are more closely related to textiles than anything else. Nanoengineering, information technologies, electronic device and Wireless communication miniaturization have all advanced significantly in the last few decades. A protective textile is a garment or fabric item that is designed to protect the wearer from harmful environmental effects. In many cases, protective and safety textiles are technical textiles with a high - tech character. For adequate protection, special clothing is required. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is intended to protect employees from serious workplace injuries or illnesses caused by contact with chemicals, radiological hazards, physical hazards, electrical dangers, mechanical hazards, or other workplace hazards. PPE includes a variety of protection textiles and protective clothing, such as garments, coveralls, gloves, safety vests, and life jackets, in addition to face shields, safety glasses, hard hats, earplugs, respirators, safety shoes, and others. In this context, bastardization of relevant test methods, safety requirements, quality assurance measures, certification procedures, and so on is extremely important. Extensive research is being conducted in order to develop protective textiles for a variety of occupations.
