The electrical utilities industry encompasses anyone that works in electric power transmission, distribution or generation. All of these workers face the possibility of exposure to arc flash, and those involved in electricity generation may also be exposed to flash fire.
The OSHA 29 CFR 1910.269 regulation requires employers to identify employees that are at risk of exposure to these hazards, analyze the level of incident heat energy to which the employees could be exposed, and ensure that they wear clothing that offers the appropriate level of protection. The National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), adopted as law by many states, provides additional requirements related to the use of flame-resistant (FR) clothing.
