FLAME RETARDANT WORKWEAR
Flame retardant workwear serves as a crucial line of defense against potential hazards in environments where workers are exposed to flames, sparks, or extreme heat.
Three worker categories are required to wear FR clothing based on the primary hazards, which are the following:
- Electric Arc: Workers include electricians and utility workers.
- Flash Fire: Pharmaceutical, chemical, and refinery workers belong in this category.
- Combustible Dust: This category includes people who work in food processing plants, as well as those in the paper and pulp industry.
Flame-retardant workwear (commonly called FR clothing) is also used in the oil and gas industry. Welders, factory employees, and metalworkers wear protective garments, too. Motor racing and other leisure activities also benefit from FR clothing.
But what exactly is flame-retardant clothing? When a piece of clothing has the label “FR,” whether it is a shirt, pants, or overalls, it means that it can provide protection when the wearer comes in contact with fire. Although flame-retardant clothing does not provide full fire protection, it is designed to safeguard wearers against intermittent flames and heat exposure.
How do flame-retardant materials work?
Flame retardant workwear is like most items, and it will burn when the conditions are right. However, flame-retardant clothes do offer protection from high temperatures, thermal conditions, and intermittent flames.
FR clothing is engineered to protect wearers from injury when in contact with flames. It means the garment will not catch fire easily. If they do, however, they can self-extinguish, provided that the flame is brief and intermittent. This characteristic reduces the risk of burn injuries, allowing the wearer to escape from an unsafe site. Thus, it increases the chance of survival in an unexpected thermal problem, such as a flash fire or an electric arc.
