There are many standards (OSHA, NFPA, ASTM) addressing the proper wearing, adequate protective performance, and necessary care and maintenance for FR PPE programs. For an employer or a wearer these standards and associated requirements can be confusing.
Understanding and focusing on the appropriate standards for your particular hazard and workplace situation are critical to help reduce potential wearer injury. Many questions can be answered by understanding which standard is applicable.
