How to Inspect, Care and Maintain FR Clothing and PPE…

Per OSHA 1910.132 and NFPA 70E, it is the employers responsibility for assurance that your employees understand the regular inspection processes to ensure that FR Clothing and PPE are in proper condition to provide the appropriate protection.

An example of a possible recommended approach:

  • Company PPE Standards – Establish clearly written standards for minimum acceptable condition levels
  • Inspection – For FR Clothing after each laundry process and for other PPE before each usage
  • Repair or Replace – Within the written standards that establish limits that for FR Clothing repairs.
  • For Repairs – Refer to Westex Home Laundry Care and Maintenance Guide Chapter 5
  • For Replacements – Go to Safety Threads Products Section to place orders
