Flame-Resistant Clothing For The Flash Fire Hazard: Care, Use and Maintenance

Flame-Resistant Clothing For The Flash Fire Hazard: Care, Use and Maintenance

Even the most comprehensive safety program can only mitigate—not eliminate—risk associated with the flash fire hazard. A reliable and controllable means of protecting employees from harm is the proper use of PPE. In a flash fire context, flame resistant clothing provides further protection and offers a foundational defense. This paper guides safety managers and purchasers in the selection, use, care and maintenance of clothing for flash fire protection that’s compliant with the industry consensus standard NFPA® 2112.


Sweeping Dust and Debris Could Blow Your Safety Rating

5 Reasons Industrial Vacuum Cleaners Need to be Part of Your Dust Control Program

Sweeping or blowing fugitive dust during housekeeping is widely discouraged by OSHA and the NFPA for nearly all industries. Seemingly benign, dusts create an assortment of hazards that include flying particles that can lead to eye injury, slip hazards and ergonomic injuries. The most serious hazards surrounding the sweeping and blowing of dust threaten lives, such as respiratory and explosion hazards. The use of industrial vacuums to remove dust is almost always recommended as a preferred method of removing fugitive dust. Rather than redistributing dust, industrial vacuum cleaners remove dusts and therefore reduce or eliminate the previously mentioned hazards.

The Advantages of Mobile Anchor Points

The Advantages of Mobile Anchor Points

Fall safety remains a number one concern in both the general and construction industries. As building functionality and design evolves, it’s become more complex: with varying job types and work sites, traditional solutions like guardrails don’t always fit the bill. For various reasons, harnesses and lanyards can be the most economically or logistically suitable choice. An OSHA-certified anchor point is a critical component of any harness and lanyard system. Usually, they’re installed on the roof (or elsewhere on your building), ready to connect to a lifeline or lanyard, which then connects to a harness to prevent its wearer from falling. But a fixed anchor point doesn’t always allow for the versatility that brought you to choosing a harness system to begin with.


Chemical Splash Protection for Laboratories

Chemical Splash Protection for Laboratories

Lab coats have been used for decades, but they have typically been made from cotton or polyester/cotton blends, with the primary purpose of keeping foreign materials off the clothing under the coat. Two of the most common lab accidents involve chemicals and fire/explosions, and common lab coats don’t provide protection from either hazard. This technical brief outlines the importance of chemical splash protection (CP) clothing for laboratories.
