ANSI Surveys Important Standards for the Big Game

ASTM International, a member and audited designator of the American National Standards Institute, has two standards that provide guidance for protective headgear for football.

With Super Bowl LIII drawing near, ANSI has posted a quick look at standards that are in place to ensure the safety and success of the Feb. 3 event in Atlanta.

ASTM International, a member and audited designator of the American National Standards Institute, has two standards that provide guidance for protective headgear for football: ASTM F717-10, Standard Specification for Football Helmets, which establishes requirements for shock absorption, construction, materials, visibility, and labeling; and ASTM F429-10, Standard Test Method for Shock-Attenuation Characteristics of Protective Headgear for Football, which provides test methods for shock absorption.

Also on ANSI's list is NFPA 13E-2015, Recommended Practice for Fire Department Operations in Properties Protected by Sprinkler and Standpipe Systems, which guides fire department operations for seating facilities located in the open air or within semi-enclosed structures such as stadium complexes. It covers the construction, location, protection, and maintenance of grandstands, bleachers, and similar seating arrangements.

For fans watching the game at home, key standards include IEC 60335-2-13 Ed. 6.1 b:2016, Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety - Part 2-13: Particular requirements for deep fat fryers, frying pans and similar appliances. It was developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission Technical Committee 61, Safety of household and similar electrical appliances.
