Flame Resistant Clothing (FRC): Your First Line of Personal Protection in the Workplace
Did you know that some of the most serious and fatal work-related burn injuries occur when clothing catches fire and continues to burn? Fire hazards can be a serious threat for workersâ€”especially those who run the risk of exposure to flash fires, electric arc flashes, combustible dust flashes or other hazards.
To reduce the risk of serious injury, many workers are required to wear flame resistant clothing (FRC), which have the ability to self-extinguish when they are removed from an ignition source. This program focuses on the protective qualities of flame resistant clothing and how it can help to keep workers safe on the job. Length: 15 minutes
