Like all good things, summer must come to an end. Fall is quickly approaching and with it comes foul weather and cold temperatures. Thankfully, staying warm, dry, and compliant doesn’t have to be hard.
Finding the proper work wear and foul weather gear will depend on the environment, work conditions/practices, and potential hazards you face. Rain, low visibility, and cold temperatures are just a few of the factors that need to be considered when selecting the proper FR workwear and outerwear. Equally important to staying warm and dry is remaining compliant to industry standards for safety. Layering FR garments is a great way to stay warm and dry, but, if not done properly, it can interfere with the necessary requirements for compliance to the industry and employer standards. Whether you comply with OSHA 1910, NFPA 70E, and NFPA 2112 outer most layers must be FR.
To prepare you for the change of seasons, here are 5 ways to stay warm and remain compliant this fall.
