Title Hands on explosives: Safety testing of protective measures
Bibliographic information Jan. 2010, Vol.48, No.1, p.28-34. Illus. 25 ref.
Abstract Several attempts have been made to test the effectiveness of protective measures for the handling of explosives in laboratories. This study investigated safety gloves and a combined safety helmet and face shield. Experimental setups were used to simulate the effects of an explosion in a glass flask on the glove or helmet protected body. Findings are discussed.
