Why Buy Certified? Understanding Standards NFPA 2112 and ASTM F1506 and Why Certification Matters When Selecting FR PPE

Flame resistant clothing can mean the difference between life or death in a workplace fire or arc flash.  The history, science and standards behind flame resistant personal protective equipment (FR PPE) are complicated.  This webinar will explain:

  1. how and who develops FR clothing standards,
  2. what tests must be passed to earn certification, and
  3. how these tests simulate real-world workplace conditions. 

Learn the reasons that FR garments should not just meet industry standards, but instead should be certified, and why that matters for the safety and protection of your workforce.
