OSHA’s 2014 1910.269 ruling marks a distinct departure from its predecessor. In fact, up until the new rule was promulgated, 1910.269 simply required that clothing “do no harm” in the event of an arc flash. In stark contrast, the 2014 ruling specifically requires employers to provide arc/flame resistant (FR) clothing […]

“Inherent” and “treated” are the two terms used most to distinguish between FR fabrics. The difference between treated and inherently flame resistant fabrics relates to the process used in making the final product flame resistant (1).

Each finish has […]
