We have the pleasure to invite you to the 7th European Conference on Protective Clothing (7thECPC) and NOKOBETEF 12, which will be held in Izmir, Turkey, on 23-25 May 2016.
The conference focuses on the safety and optimal protection of people in hazardous environments. The European Society of Protective Clothing (ESPC) organizes the ECPC in association with the members. The 7th ECPC will be organized by Dokuz Eylul University Textile Engineering Department in association with the European Society of Protective Clothing.
Recently interest in job and labor safety directed people to personal protective equipment (PPE) more than before. For this reason, expectations of end-users from the PPEs have increased day-by-day. The main problem of PPEs is not so much the required level of protection alone, but the other factors are important. PPEs are expected to be comfortable enough for end-use, intelligent, ecological that does not damage the environment and economical that many people can use them.
This conference is intended for researchers, designers, manufacturers, purchasers, experts in health and safety, end-users, public authorities (procurement) and legislators. It will give an opportunity to share know-how, dissemination and improve the knowledge about protective clothing and we wish to welcome all who are interested in this subject to Turkey, to a beautiful seaside town, Çeşme.
