OSHA’s recent 1910.269 ruling for the electric utility industry defines FR clothing as PPE–similar to 2010’s OSHA 1910.132 Enforcement Policy Memo regarding protection from flash fire in oil and gas well drilling, servicing, and production-related operations. In fact, the Preamble to the recent 1910.269 ruling introduces additional commentary from OSHA that paints a broader picture of the agency’s stance on proper care and maintenance of PPE in general. As a result, key messages in 1910.269 are relevant to the oil and gas industries and other industries that use arc/flame resistant (FR) clothing to protect workers from arc flash or flash fire hazards.
Tyndale’s mission of providing increasingly personalized, coordinated and convenient flame resistant apparel solutions continues as a new distribution center comes closer to opening its doors in Houston, TX. Set to open in September, Tyndale’s newest distribution center will mirror the capabilities of our Pennsylvania-based distribution facility, providing better delivery to Tyndale customers in the region.
We’ve covered the dangers of using DEET-based insect repellent while wearing FR, and why you should apply permethrin to clothing instead. While FR clothing is considered the “last line of defense” in the event of an arc flash or flash fire incident, insect repellent is often the “first line of defense” against ticks and other blood-feeding, disease-carrying insects.
“Inherent” and “treated” are the two terms used most to distinguish between FR fabrics. The difference between treated and inherently flame resistant fabrics relates to the process used in making the final product flame resistant (1).

This post discusses the last critical step in selecting an FRC supplier – how the supplier administers and ultimately manages your program. Choosing a service-oriented FRC supplier can be a worthwhile investment that will help protect your employees against the hazards they face, reduce program dissatisfaction and eliminate additional, unexpected costs. The way your clothing program is managed can directly impact its success!
