Workplace safety in the United States is constantly evolving. Increased awareness and implementation of NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace® is helping reduce and prevent workplace injury related to electrical arc flash. Hundreds of deaths and thousands of disabling injuries still occur each year due to shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast. NFPA 70E addresses the potential burns relating to arc blast.
The 2012 NFPA 70E standard outlines the steps for achieving compliance with OSHA 1910 Subpart S, and OSHA 1926 Subpart K.
Thousands of everyday wearers of Flame and Flash Fire Resistant protective apparel complain about the comfort level of their flame resistant protective apparel. FR clothing does NOT need to be uncomfortable and hot. TECGEN® brand FR garments achieve increased levels of arc flash protection with lighter weight, moisture wicking, breathable fabrics.
