2017: Keeping FR Safety Top of Mind

13 Dec


It’s hard to believe, but 2017 is already coming to a close. It was a busy year for us here at Bulwark. We asked you to share your burning FR questions with us and answered them throughout the year in the form of blog posts, webinars, infographics, whitepapers and more. Click through the topics below to see the top stories of the year.

Give Your FR Some TLC


Even the best safety programs will fail if the FR garments do not receive the proper care and maintenance. You can ensure your FR’s compliance and extend the life of the garments by adhering to the guidelines for washing, repairing and caring for your FR. Bulwark’s free FR Care & Maintenance posters break these rules down in simple terms to help you create a culture of compliance.


Arc Ratings Whitepaper


You know your crew needs to wear FR clothing that meets a certain arc rating. But do you understand what that protection level means or how FR fabric gets its arc rating? Our new whitepaper addresses the arc flash hazard, a brief history of the arc rating system and how it all comes together in the form of arc-rated FR fabrics to keep you and your crew compliant.



Wear It Right


Is your undershirt FR? Are your coveralls zipped up? Keeping track of the many elements of FR compliance can be a daunting task, but its importance can’t be overstated. To help keep safety top-of-mind, Bulwark is offering FREE “Wear it Right” FR safety posters illustrated with the complete Do’s and Don’ts of FR compliance.



Get Your FR Questions Answered


We want to hear from you! So this year, we introduced a new feature to help ensure the safety of every person in FR. You send us your FR questions, and our Bulwark team of experts provides an answer. We’ll also be featuring some of our favorite questions in our monthly newsletters. Take a moment to submit your most burning FR questions.



Layer it on


You know that layering your FR is the key to staying warm and compliant. But FR layering can get tricky. However, there are a few hard-and-fast rules to keep in mind. Our Bulwark University experts have compiled them in an FR layering fact sheet, to keep your layered system comfortable and compliant.
