The article also covers important criteria to use in selecting an arc-rated clothing supplier who can reliably help employers understand how protective requirements and employer responsibilities are changed under the new rule and deliver quality protective clothing in compliance with the new requirements.

Among other features, does your supplier offer these important benefits?

  • Help employers understand their responsibilities under the new ruling, how to properly protect employees, and how to adapt their current protective clothing programs.
  • Provide straightforward care and maintenance instructions and resources to support employers as they, in turn, educate employees and enforce care and maintenance standards.
