Struggling with employee compliance for your FRC Program? In many industries, like oil and gas or electric utilities, employee clothing is dictated by certain safety standards or workplace requirements the garments must meet. However, if your employees are uncomfortable in their flame resistant clothing (FRC), there is potential for garments to be worn incorrectly (rolling up sleeves, taking off protective layers, etc.), possibly resulting in a safety incident.
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. Wet clothing, in turn, has a negative effect on comfort—reducing energy efficiency and productivity. To make matters worse, wet clothing facilitates the escape of body heat—leaving you open to cold stress.
With cold weather coming quickly and the influence of a strong El Niño in the forecast, make sure you are prepared with the right waterproof outerwear. 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:
