MVMFR Joins Industry Leaders to Launch The Partnership for Electrical Safety

Americans working on or near energized electrical equipment deserve protection from arc flash, but more than half a million workers in the U.S. alone are not provided this protection despite standards that have been in place for 20 years.

It’s why Mount Vernon FR has joined leading companies in the Arc-Rated (AR) & Flame-Resistant (FR) clothing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) industry to launch The Partnership for Electrical Safety, an industry-led effort to ensure that the hundreds of thousands of Americans working on energized electrical equipment are properly equipped and protected from the hazards of electrical arc flash.

The Partnership for Electrical Safety intends to ensure that all American electrical workers have access to and properly wear the appropriate arc-rated clothing and associated PPE. This effort is already underway and is being accomplished through direct engagement with the leadership at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as the key Congressional oversight committees who are concerned with improving worker safety.
