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

Apr 20, 2022

Sponsored by Bulwark


Sponsored by Bulwark Protection. Receive practical guidance on the proper selection, use, care and maintenance of arc-rated (AR) and flame-resistant (FR) garments to protect against arc flash. You will develop a thorough understanding of the regulations, standards and program implementation best practices. We’ll also review detailed information on layering for arc flash protection because under the worst circumstances, lack of guidance on base layer clothing could leave an employee at risk for burns.

What You Will Learn

  • Explain how to select and maintain AR/FR garments
  • Discuss how to successfully implement AR/FR clothing program for the arc flash hazard
  • Define guidelines for base layer clothing to be worn under the AR/FR uniform.
