TECGEN® FR has announced plans to form its first Assessment Group (T.A.G. Team) during ASSE Safety 2015 from June 7-9 in Dallas. The company will enlist industry workers in the oil and gas, electrical and utilities industries to apply at the booth and then provide meaningful feedback on the newest TECGEN® FR vented shirt prototype.

"It is essential that our garments meet not only industry regulations, but also the needs and standards of workers who rely on FR garments to keep them safe and comfortable," said Cortlandt Minnich, New Business Development, TECGEN® FR. "The goal of our new T.A.G. Team program is to create a shirt influenced by the people who wear safety garments on a near daily basis."

To participate in the T.A.G. Team, interested professionals will be asked to complete a brief survey at the TECGEN® FR booth #2735. A select group of workers who demonstrate a connection with and passion for helping the industry create the perfect FR garments will then be invited to engage in an exclusive wear trial. T.A.G. Team members will test the company's newest vented shirt prototype for 30 days and offer reviews and suggestions about the new product and influence the design and development of the new line.

TECGEN® FR will be evaluating the feedback to update the shirt for its expected shipping in Fall 2015.
