The critical differentiator for the safety of flame resistant garment should be "Proven" vs. "Unproven"
What should be critically important to the ultimate end user is that the garments are flame resistant (FR) for the life of the garment. The FR protection shouldn't wash out, wear out, or fall off, and it should be there every time the garment is taken out of a locker or drawer and worn to work. It is also critically important to look for proven products. The fabric properties most important to wearers of flame resistant apparel are protection, comfort, and overall value. There are large differences among otherwise compliant FR fabrics, including those that at first glance appear quite similar...

Certifying Personal Protective Technologies
Conformity assessment is key to ensuring that the products we purchase are effective and perform to specifications; as users we are not expected to know or be engaged in the actual intricacies of how products are tested and verified to make sure that they meet performance requirements. This report focuses on conformity assessment for occupational personal protective technologies (PPT)—ensuring that PPT are effective in preventing or reducing hazardous exposures or situations that workers face in their jobs. Because respirators already have an extensive testing and conformity assessment process...
Respiratory Protection for Terrorist Threats and Other Emergencies
This September 11th marks eight years since the devastating attacks on the World Trade Center. At this time we honor those who gave their lives and those who risked their lives and their health in rescue and clean-up efforts.
