Abstract
The development of performance criteria as the basis for the design requirements of personal protective equipment is discussed. Included are head, hand, and eye protection. It is pointed out that the state of knowledge on the tolerance of human beings to assaults from work place hazards is not well established. As a result, many design aspects of existing standards of personal protective equipment are unrelated to the real world hazards and, therefore, the effectiveness of the protective equipment remains questionable.
