Abstract

In regard to the existing COVID-19 pandemic, adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) is required, one of which is a hazmat suit. This study aimed to produce a validated hazmat suit for medical personnel. This research and development (R&D) used Thiagarajan’s theory consisting of four stages along with the needs analysis. The design stage included designing the initial design of the hazmat suit. The development stage covered design implementation and expert validation. The dissemination stage comprised dissemination through the socialization of the use of PPE for volunteers of Kampung Wani Jogo Suroboyo to deal with covid-19 at Lidah Kulon sub-district, Lakarsantri, Surabaya. The results showed that the present study produced four prototypes of hazmat suits named hazmat prototype 1, hazmat prototype 2, hazmat prototype 3, and hazmat prototype 4 along with the used materials, colors, details, sizes, and cloth cares. Kappa’s inter-rater reliability index has resulted at 1.0 in an excellent agreement category. This meant that the products assessed for their design, materials, sewing technique, size, usability, comfort, safety, appearance/look, and color combinations had met the requirements as fashionable PPE.
