Why workers need to wear Flame Resistant Clothing?

1.FR CLOTHING SAVES LIVES

 

The best reason to invest in an FR program: it saves lives. For those working in industries that put them at risk of their clothes igniting, FR is a critical component in protection.

 

The key to FR clothing is that it self-extinguishes.

 

The most serious burns in an industrial setting aren’t caused by the actual fire or explosion itself, but by regular workwear (e.g., non-FR cotton, nylon or polyester) igniting and continuing to burn even after the heat source has been removed. The benefits of fire resistant clothing is that it self-extinguishes and dramatically reduces the severity of burn injuries and provides the worker valuable escape time to increase the chances of survival.

This graph shows how minimizing the percentage of body burn injury can greatly increase a workers chance of survical.Once the percentage of burn injury goes above 50%,the survival rate drops significantly in all age groups.

 

2.FR CLOTHING SAVES MONEY.

 

FR clothing costs more initially than everyday work clothing, but FR clothing should be seen as an investment, not an expense. Some FR fabrics last considerably longer than standard work clothing, helping to offset a higher purchase price with longer wear lives. Workrite Uniform utilizes special construction techniques to maximize garment durability, resulting in garments that last longer and need to be replaced less often.

 

And the cost of a serious burn injury can be significant. Add up your direct costs (medical, prolonged recovery and rehabilitation time, disability, job retraining) with the indirect costs (workers compensation, lost work time, increased insurance premiums), and often times the cost of a single burn injury exceeds the cost of an entire FR program.

 

One electric company reported the total cost of a single burn injury before FR clothing at more than $2 million,and the employee never returned to work;Since using FR clothing,a comparable arc exposure cost less than $50,000,and the employee lost minimal work time.

 

 

3.FR CLOTHING COMPLIES WITH INDUSTRY STANDARDS.

 

FR clothing’s primary function is to protect the worker in the event of an accidental exposure, but it can also protect the company as a whole. Governments of all over the world require employers to protect employees from hazards in the workplace. In fact, some Standards have been recognized as a must by numerous countries and industries.Like EN ISO 11611, EN ISO 11612, EN 1149, EN 61482-1-2, NFPA 2112, etc.

 

By investing in FR clothing that complies with these important standards and regulations, you can keep your employees safer and avoid citations and fines.
