Read Tyndale’s article, featured on page 44 of the October 2014 edition of Industrial Safety & Hygiene News (ISHN) Magazine, for guidance to employers looking to understand both OSHA’s 2014 update to 29 CFR 1910.269 and OSHA’s view of care and maintenance for PPE in a broader context—beyond the utility industry.
Generally, flame resistant (FR) clothing is defined in the U.S. as clothing made from fabrics that self-extinguish once the source of ignition is removed. However, the specific definition varies among industries creating ambiguity in its interpretation and application. Existing OSHA documents can be used to paint a broader picture of OSHA’s stance on proper care and maintenance of PPE in general. The result is a best-practice guide for proper care and maintenance of FR clothing PPE for virtually all applications.
