This is the second post of a four-part series where we cover recommendations for compliance with OSHA 1910.132 FRC Flash Fire Memo.
The first option for garment specification that would meet OSHA 1910.132 standard requirements is the threshold that garments meet NFPA 2112. NFPA 2112 specifies the minimum design, performance, certification requirements and test methods for flame resistant garments for use in areas at risk from flash fires.
This is the first post of a four-part series where we will cover recommendations for compliance with OSHA 1910.132 FRC Flash Fire Memo.
The following information is intended to provide insight into compliance with the March 19, 2010 Enforcement Policy Letter issued by OSHA for compliance with OSHA 1910.132 as it relates to protection against flash fire.
Worker Safety in the News
Many organizations are urging overseas apparel manufacturers to adopt workplace safety solutions after the tragic incident in April when over 1,100 Bangladeshi workers died when their apparel/textile manufacturing plant collapsed (1). In many countries, employees face dangerous working conditions for extremely low wages, in factories where few preventative measures are in place and safety solutions are an afterthought.
At Tyndale, we are proud of our flame resistant clothing and how it protects employees in a variety of industries. No matter what industry you work in, from electric utilities to manufacturing to oil and gas, Tyndale can help create a unique clothing program that fits you and your employees’ needs.
