As a safety professional, you’re no doubt familiar with the industry-guiding standard of NFPA 2112. This crucial set of guidelines ensures that workers are protected from flash fire in an industrial environment by flame resistant (FR) work wear.
Uniforms are the unsung heroes of the workplace. They give team members a sense of pride and unity. They contribute to a polished, professional appearance for the organization as a whole. And they can even help protect employees against potentially life-threatening hazards.
While most of us have never experienced an arc flash or flash fire first hand, it has been proven that these events do occur more commonly than you might think and FR clothing has been proven to greatly enhance your survivability chances should you be exposed to one of these hazards.
