The Selection, Use, Care and Maintenance of FR/AR Clothing

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: AIHA
By: Derek Sang, Technical Training Manager, QSSP, IASHEP, Bulwark Protective Apparel

Though recent changes in regulations from OSHA and other governing bodies concerned with workplace safety have driven a renewed adherence to safety standards when it comes to hazards in the workplace, there is still a lot of misleading, inaccurate and incorrect information circulating. This webinar will seek to refute any erroneous information and answer all questions regarding the proper selection wear, care, and maintenance of FR/AR clothing.

The proper selection of PPE is very important. This seminar will demonstrate that, while the thermal hazards may differ across industries, the basics for FR/AR clothing’s selection, use, care, and maintenance share similarities. Attendees will gain a thorough understanding of the regulations, standards and program implementation “best practices” in regard to the selection, use, care and maintenance of FR/AR garments for arc flash and flash fire hazards.
