Flame-Resistant Shirts

Proposed regulation changes, namely OSHA 29 CFR 1910.269, may lead to a flame-resistant clothing requirement for all utility workers exposed to an arc-flash hazard. Depending on the hazard exposure, you might be required to wear both shirts and pants with an arc-thermal performance-value (ATPV) rating of 4, 8 or 12. For those who are not looking forward to moving out of 100% cotton T-shirts, Workrite has a new line of flame-resistant cotton knit shirts.
Workrite's PRO-C shirts are breathable and comfortable, and come in a T-shirt or Henley style in a variety of colors. With an ATPV rating of 11, they offer plenty of arc-flash protection in a single-layer shirt.
