Wear the Right Socks!

work sock safety

With the weather warming up, it’s time to get back outside and get  back to outside work. And on the days when the sun is beating down, you’ll feel it on your neck, and you’ll feel it on your feet. For those of us who work outdoors, we know that the sweatiest, smelliest part of the whole day comes right down to your socks. Which is why wearing the right work socks can make all the difference.

Whether they are made of cotton, acrylic, polyester, or anything else, the three biggest things we’re looking for are comfort, support, and durability. And these things can be accomplished in a number of different ways. For instance, when it’s warm out, the biggest thing that can help achieve comfort is a pair of socks that are designed to keep you cool. And since warm weather plus work tends to equal sweat, it’s important to have socks that keep you dry too. Moisture-wicking socks like Coolmax socks from brands like Wigwam and Thorlos are some of the most popular for accomplishing these goals. Continue Reading…

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.
