OHS SafetyPod: Your FR/AR PPE Questions—Answered: Hygiene & Safety

Stephen Morrill from Westex at Milliken stops by the podcast to talk with OH&S Editor Sydny Shepard about safety professionals' most pressing FR/AR PPE questions where hygiene and safety is concerned.

The world may now be familiar with Personal Protection Equipment, but as those in the safety industry know: PPE is not a new concept. With the increase in concerns for hygiene and safety when it comes to individual and shared PPE, the more questions safety professionals have.

In this episode of the podcast, we focus on those that don FR/AR PPE each work day and the hygiene practices safety professionals must go through when cleaning and disinfecting these pieces. I am pleased to have Stephen Morrill, Marketing Manager for Westex by Milliken, join me on this episode of the podcast to talk about the most frequently asked questions when it comes to FR/AR PPE.

First, a little bit about Stephen: As Marketing Manager for Westex by Milliken, Stephen works closely with the sales and technical teams to educate the industry on arc flash and flash fire hazards. Stephen focuses on developing useful tools and relating best practices to connect with end users as they build critical FR/AR garment programs.
