Hugh Hoagland Presents - Two New Electrical Safety Standards of Interest to Safety Professionals - ATSM F3258 & F3502
There are two new electrical safety standards safety professionals may be interested in: ASTM F3258 Arc Rated Electrical Protector Gloves and ASTM F3502 Cloth Face Coverings. These two new standards offer testing for many factors that older standards did not.
F3258 applies to electrical protector gloves which have, since the 1800s, been leather. The ASTM F696 specification was a leather specification with no testing for cut, puncture, or arc flash. With new materials and a new standard, protector gloves will take on new characteristics without compromising the historical standard used by utilities for over 40 years.
Cloth face covering efficiency along with flame resistance and an arc rating or a flash fire certification is now easily addressed with new standard tests like what has been done for medical masks and respirators in the past. Join us for ideas on how to specify these products for your workplace.
