NFPA 1992 provides standards for emergency response PPE against liquid splash, particulate materials, and non-carcinogenic vapors in HAZMAT environments.
NFPA 1994 sets design, certification, and minimum performance requirements for Chemical, Biological, Radioactive, and Nuclear (CBRN) protective ensembles for first responders to incidents involving CBRN terrorism agents, and for first responders exposed to victims or materials during assessment, extrication, rescue, triage, decontamination, treatment, site security, crowd management, and force protection operations at incidents involving CBRN terrorism agents.
