Safety Standards Compliance
NFPA 70E is the national standard for clothing of employees working on energized electrical circuit parts. NFPA 70E requirements for safe work practices to protect personnel by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards.
NFPA 2112 and its companion document for garment manufacturers, NFPA 2113, are the first Standards developed for industrial flash fire protective garments in the United States.
NFPA 2112 is essential for manufacturers and certifying agencies. This standard protects workers from flash fire exposure and injury by specifying performance requirements and test methods for flame-resistant fabric and garments.
NFPA 2113 was developed primarily for garment end users to reduce health and safety risks associated with incorrect selection, use, and maintenance, as well as contamination and damage of flame-resistant garments. This standard specifies selection, care, use, and maintenance requirements for such garments that are compliant with NFPA 2112 and that are in use in areas at risk from flash fires.
ASTM F1506 is the standard performance specification for flame resistant and arc rated textile materials for wearing apparel for use by electrical workers exposed to momentary electric arc and related thermal hazards.
Any combustible material can burn rapidly when in a finely divided form. If such a dust is suspended in air in the right concentration, under certain conditions, it can become explosible. Even materials that do not burn in larger pieces (such as aluminum or iron), given the proper conditions, can be explosible in dust form.
And Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV) is a rating assigned to flame resistant clothing indicating the level of protection provided. Heavier weight fabrics typically have higher ATPVs and provide increased protection.
ANSI/ISEA 107 American National Standard for High Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear establishes design, material, photometric and physical performance requirements for high visibliity apparel. ANSI/ISEA 107 Class 2 Garments provide superior visibility for high risk occupations with a complex background and/or severe weather, and where the vehicle speeds exceed 25 mph. Class 3 garments allow the wearer to be identified as a person in high risk situations due to slight distance and/or severe weather and high speed vehicle traffic.
