Know Your Industry's Standards
Safety standards have been developed to protect workers from industrial hazards. Standards related to the performance requirements of FR garments include:
 
NFPA 2112 – Flame-Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel against Flash Fire: This is a standard for the oil & gas drilling and petrochemical industries. The standard specifies the minimum performance requirements and test methods for FR fabrics, components, and the design and certification requirements for garments in areas at risk of flash fires. It requires FR fabrics to pass a comprehensive battery of thermal tests, including:
 
ASTM D6413 Vertical Flame Test
ASTM F2700 Heat Transfer Performance (HTP) Test
Thermal Stability Test
ASTM F1930 Thermal Mannequin Test
 
NFPA 2113 – Selection, Care, Use and Maintenance of Flame-Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel against Flash Fire: This standard serves as a user's guide for industrial FR clothing. It addresses topics such as hazard assessment, purchasing, cleaning, repairs, storage, decontamination, retiring garments and proper use procedures. This standard requires that garments be certified to NFPA 2112.
 
NFPA 70E – Electrical Safety in the Workplace: This standard specifies requirements for workplace electrical safety when working on energized electrical equipment and conductors. It requires the employer to perform a hazard assessment to determine the potential arc flash exposure from the equipment, which establishes the arc rating requirement for the workers' protective clothing. Garments are required to meet the requirements of ASTM F1506
