ABOUT SCOTT MARGOLIN
Scott brings over 30 years of experience in arc-rated/flame resistant (FR) clothing to his role as Vice President of Technical at Tyndale. Before joining our team, Scott spent the last 16 years as International Technical Director at Westex, after working for 10 years at DuPont – working with their FR fibers Kevlar and Nomex and leading the Nomex Flash Fire business – and serving as a firefighter for the first six years of his career.
Scott has conducted over 1,800 arc flashes and nearly 4,000 flash fires at labs in the USA, Canada, Europe, South America and Asia. Much of this research focused on real world hazards and PPE performance. His arc flash work includes both high and low voltage arcs in actual gear at real system energies, pioneering the use of super slow motion HD video analysis of both the arcs and PPE response. He also led groundbreaking experiments to quantify the duration and energy of full scale, outdoor hydrocarbon flash fires, and their correlation to NFPA 2112 lab PPE performance.
Scott travels and presents globally to share his research and learnings on flash fire, arc flash, and combustible dust hazards to improve worker safety and the fibers, fabrics, and garments used to protect against these hazards. He has authored dozens of technical articles and white papers, given over a thousand presentations all over the world, and led many webcasts on these subjects. Significantly, Scott has served as SME (Subject Matter Expert) to OSHA, NFPA, NJATC, ASSE, NECA and others on a wide variety of FR, PPE, and thermal hazard issues.
Scott’s extensive experience and knowledge provide Tyndale with unmatched technical expertise. As our Vice President of Technical, Scott serves as Tyndale’s lead resource for any technical questions or issues that arise.
