Building and Implementing an FR/AR Program for the Arc Flash Hazard

Building and Implementing an FR/AR Program for the Arc Flash Hazard

March 20, 2019 at 2pm ET

Sponsored by:


The proper selection of PPE is very important—especially for those with a demonstrated arc flash hazard.

This free webinar will guide you through the proper selection, use, care and maintenance of FR/AR garments to protect against arc flash.

You will also gain a thorough understanding of the regulations, standards and program implementation “best practices”, including detailed information on layering for arc flash protection.

Register now & learn that a successful FR/AR clothing program is not fully defined if it does not place restrictions or set guidelines on clothing to be worn under the FR/AR uniform. Under the worst circumstances, lack of guidance on base layer clothing could leave an employee at risk for burns.
