The Essentials of Arc Flash PPE Maintenance

carhartt-fr-clothing

Arc flash Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and their Arc Thermal Protective Value (ATPV) is essential in many workplaces to keep workers safe from arc blast related injuries such as eye damage and burns.  However, putting on the right PPE for the job alone does not guarantee safety.  The PPE itself must be properly maintained in order for it to function correctly and keep the wearer safe.  Fortunately, arc flash PPE maintenance can be very easy if you keep these simple tips in mind.

Caring for your FR workwear starts with keeping track of how old it is.  It is recommended that you have five sets of arc flash clothing, washing and wearing each set only once per work week.  When you follow this guideline, 100 percent cotton  garments last 12 to 16 months, 88/12 cotton/nylon blends last 18 to 30 months and 93 percent Nomex blends last 2 1/2 to 4 years.

There are many bristling questions, which are faced by government contractors. The most challenging among them is the matter of domestic preference programs. These domestic preference programs include the Trade Agreements Act, Buy American Act, Free Trade Agreements, General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, Defense Authorization Acts and Appropriations Acts and the Berry Amendment. Some certain laws among these add complications for the sake of ethics and for the purpose of other compliance programs. Therefore, the companies should take into consideration their supplies source, as the violation can result in a great loss of both time and money.

The most concerned law among all the domestic preference laws is the Berry Amendment. The Berry Amendment for military footwear and clothing was established for a narrowly defined purpose, to ensure that the U.S troops wore military uniforms wholly produced within the United States and the food products for the U.S troops were produced in the United States.
