Magid, a leading manufacturer and supplier of safety solutions and personal protective equipment (PPE), expands its clothing line to include a flame resistant welding jacket. The Magid® FR welding jacket (Item #1837GRTW) features ANSI Cut Level 4 sleeves and a breathable FR mesh back panel to help prevent heat exhaustion.
This memorandum is intended to clarify OSHA's policy for citing the general industry standard for personal protective equipment (PPE), 29 CFR 1910.132(a), for the failure to provide and use flame-resistant clothing (FRC) in oil and gas well drilling, servicing, and production-related operations. For the purpose of this memo, FRC includes both flame-resistant and fire retardant treated clothing.
