The proper selection of PPE is very important—especially for those with a demonstrated arc flash hazard. This webinar will guide attendees through the proper selection, use, care and maintenance of FR/AR garments to protect against arc flash. Attendees will gain a thorough understanding of the regulations, standards and program implementation “best practices,” including detailed information on layering for arc flash protection.
Attendees will learn that a successful FR/AR clothing program is not fully defined if it does not place restrictions or set guidelines on clothing to be worn under the FR/AR uniform. Under the worst circumstances, lack of guidance on baselayer clothing could leave an employee at risk for burns.
