Standard Specification for Ruggedness Requirements for HAZMAT Instrumentation

Fecha:
2016-12-27 /Active
Abstract:

This specification establishes the ruggedness requirements for equipment used in Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) instrumentation, including devices used to detect or monitor for hazardous material. It defines for design and test purposes the environment in which HAZMAT equipment will likely be exposed during storage, transport, and field use. Passive personal protective equipment such as respirators and protective suits are not covered. The specification addresses materials and manufacture, physical and mechanical properties, performance and environmental requirements, dimensions, mass and permissible variations, workmanship, and finish and appearance. Definitions of terms specific to this standard are provided, including body-worn, hand-carried, mobile, portable, and transportable.

Scope:

1.1 This specification describes the ruggedness requirements for equipment used during Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) operations. The conditions defined by this specification include those related to equipment storage, transport, and field use.

1.2 This specification does not address passive personal protective equipment (PPE) such as respirators and protective suits.

1.3 The equipment addressed by this specification includes devices used to detect or monitor for hazardous material.

1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. When using a HAZMAT instrument, follow the manufacturer’s guidance and appropriate safety practices for the threat expected or suspected in the environment where the instrument will be used.
