People who work with electric utility lines, chemicals, petroleum, metals, and other flammable materials know the importance of quality flame-resistant apparel. If a uniform service is providing them clean and in like-new condition every delivery, that’s even better. Here are the greatest problems high-quality flame-resistant apparel uniform service solves:
What Problems Do Flame-Resistant Apparel Prevent
Without flame-resistant material, several easily preventable problems arise. Here are just a few.
Flash / Fire Injuries
Fire is dangerous no matter the industry, and one of the most problematic elements of any job where it’s present or likely. Injuries that result from fire exposure are incredibly painful and take a considerable time to heal. For such a regular and deadly risk, it’s important to ensure worker safety with apparel ready to stand up to burns.
Consequential Health Issues
The burns that come with fires aren’t the only health problem they can cause. With fire comes smoke and, in enclosed spaces, those who manage to escape getting burned are still inhaling toxic fumes. This potentially extends to inhaling dangerous chemicals that have been burned into a gas. These problems aren’t apparent immediately but take their toll over time. Without the masks and goggles that often come with flame-resistant apparel, these problems can be just as fatal as burns.
Fire does not discriminate and will burn anyone and anything in its path. This includes the environments they start in and often the surrounding area. Firefighters can only arrive so fast and, in life or death situations, every second counts. Company budgets are also included in this damage. $14.8 billion was lost to fire-related damages in 2019 alone. This includes worker’s compensation claims, lawsuits from staff or other surrounding businesses, government/regulator fines, and repair costs.
