It’s a recognized industry practice in the chemical and refining industries to require flame-resistant clothing where there exists a danger of flash fire or burns from accidental releases. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 2113, Standard on Selection, Care, Use and Maintenance of Flame-Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel Against Flash Fire, is a national consensus standard which applies to, among others, chemical, refining, and terminal facilities with flash fire hazards.
A new webinar from Bulwark and PennEnergy looks at NFPA 2112 and how it can best be applied to a flame-resistant clothing program. “Why NFPA 2112 Should Be Important In My FR Clothing Program” will be held July 24th at 2pm Eastern time. The free webinar will feature speaker Derek Sang, Technical Training Manager with Bulwark.
The webinar will cover the primary subjects considered essential to understanding, and protecting against, the flash fire hazard in the workplace. The causes and consequences of flash fire will be examined, with emphasis placed on historical data, specific cases, and comparisons between flame resistant and non-flame resistant clothing.
Sang will also discuss current standards, focusing on NFPA 2112/2113, and what may change in future enforcement, hazard analysis, and performance testing.
This webinar is available for mobile devices and tablets, including full video and audio.
