Our company in the past 2 years has implemented an electrical safety and control of hazardous energy program for employees world-wide. Our daily work-wear clothing minimum requirement is non-melting clothing, except in US and Canada for which our AFHA’s determine minimum PPE requirements. Unfortunately, many countries have yet to recognize arc flash is a real threat to people and arc flash isn’t isolated to just North America. (Good news is they are beginning to wake up!)
As the implementation project manager I have not been able to find non-melting clothing for our Chinese colleagues that can be sourced in China. We can get clothing items from other countries but at a higher costs, shipping delays, etc.
Anyone have any experience in this area or have any suggestions? READ MORE
