Understanding the Challenges of Managing an Effective Flame Resistant Clothing (FRC) Program:
A White Paper by Mount Vernon FR
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, more than 200 fires occur in U.S. workplaces on an average day. The result of these fires is that more than 5,000 workers are injured annually in explosions and fires on the job, with an average annual cost of more than $2 billion to American businesses.
Having a complete fire prevention program in place is crucial for employee safety and facility compliance, and the flame resistant clothing that you provide to your workforce is an integral part of your program. Check out this white paper, done by Mount Vernon FR in conjunction with ASSE, to discover industry findings about the flame resistant clothing industry, and read a summary of research results from 400 companies, representing nearly a half-million employees that wear FRC.
