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, reduces energy efficiency, productivity, and leaves you open to cold stress. Most critically, incorrect or insufficient rainwear can lead to burn injury in the event of an arc flash or flash fire.
At Tyndale, we’ve built our business on saving our customers time and money while increasing tracking and reporting for arc-rated/flame resistant clothing (FRC). But Tyndale is much more than an FRC supplier. Take your program one step farther by consolidating your protective boot, FR rainwear, and storeroom PPE supply programs with Tyndale. No need to juggle separate suppliers or manage data internally!
