This is the third post in our three-part series reviewing the 2015-16 El Niño outlook and arc-rated flame resistant rainwear options available to outdoor workers facing arc flash or flash fire hazards. In our second post we explored advanced rainwear options, while in this final post we feature some cost-effective rainwear staples that are tried and true.
Rainwear is critical to maintaining comfort and healthy body temperature in wet conditions. Otherwise, your clothing will absorb both precipitation and your body’s perspiration as you work.

If advanced rainwear options are not practical in your budget, leverage the important benefits of the waterproof layer to stay safe and dry with these proven, cost-effective solutions:

Although many utility employers began providing arc-rated clothing well before the new OSHA 1910.269, those who are now installing arc-rated clothing programs may face questions and sometimes friction from workers who are accustomed to wearing non-FR on the job.
Since OSHA promulgated the new 1910.269 in April 2014, Tyndale has been hard at work partnering with employers to understand and gain compliance with the new provisions—helping workers return home to their families safely each night.
