Monday was the first day of the annual National Safety Convention, held this year in Philadelphia, PA. We had safety folks from many industries all across the country stop by the Workrite booth to see what’s new in FR clothing plus enter to win an iPod2. I talked with safety managers about FR with hazards ranging from electric arc flash to combustible dust. They were all researching what options are available in protective clothing to protect their workers. We also took the opportunity to show them our new FR Apparel Advisor on KnowYourFR.com.
Lastly, on day one I gave a presentation on FR Garment evaluation live on the convention floor. Those attending received basic factors to consider when evaluating both FR garments as well as FR garment manufacturers. These useful tips were developed to help safety managers know what to look for so they can make good FR garment buying decisions.
I’ve included a couple shots of our updated booth as well and will be back with a full wrap-up for NSC when the show closes. -Mark
