PPE Guidance for Fentanyl Exposure Issued by IAB and CDC/NIOSH

The Interagency Board (IAB) issued guidance for exposure to fentanyl in a report titled:

Recommendations on Selection and Use of Personal Protective Equipment and Decontamination Products for First Responders Against Exposure Hazards to Synthetic Opioids, Including Fentanyl and Fentanyl Analogues.

The guidance identified different exposure risk levels and operational response functions for various emergency response and law enforcement personnel. The guidance addressed applications including special operations (SWAT, HAZMAT), investigation/evidence collection and decon operations.

For scenarios involving moderate to high levels of particulates, the IAB recommends emergency medical protective ensembles (garments, gloves and footwear), certified to NFPA 1999.

In addition to IAB, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) also provide PPE recommendations for fentanyl protection. The CDC/NIOSH guidance for moderate to high levels of particulate exposure for investigation and evidence collection, as well as Special Ops/Decon, specifies a garment or ensemble certified to NFPA 1999.
