Sponsored by Tyndale


Sponsored by Tyndale. This interview-style Q&A session, recorded on Dec. 10, 2020 aims to increase awareness on arc-rated/flame-resistant (AR/FR) clothing and OSHA requirements and standards.

We’ll also discuss how to evaluate AR/FR clothing and sourcing options, what to look for on AR/FR garment labels and how to care for and launder FR clothing, including new research in this area. And, we’ll highlight potential safety issues related to COVID-19 and AR/FR care and maintenance during the pandemic and beyond.
