Abstract
In the event of an overt action in which airborne chemicals, biological or nuclear weapons are used, Canadian Forces personnel would be required to function in extremely hazardous environments. High-performance personal protective equipment must, therefore, be available for CF personnel to protect against or minimize exposure. Of immediate concern is the provision of adequate protection for the eyes and the respiratory system. Currently available respirators were not designed to protect against the degrees of toxicity for which the CF must now be prepared. The protection problem is further compounded by the fact that women have not in the past been adequately considered in the sizing and design of military personal protective clothing and equipment.
