Due to the nature of their work, employees in the oil and gas refining industry may be exposed to flame and thermal hazards. Anywhere there is the potential for the release of a fuel, such as flammable gas or vapors, there is the possibility of a flash fire, and flame-resistant (FR) clothing can offer valuable protection.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all workplaces to be evaluated for potential hazards, such as flash fire, and mandates that personal protective equipment (PPE) be worn if it can help protect workers against such hazards. Two standards, NFPA 2112 and NFPA 2113, establish additional criteria for determining the necessary level of FR protection for workers in this industry.
