NFPA is an organization working for the well-being of workers. It helps to mitigate the risks and loss occurred due to electric and fire hazards.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides codes and standards to avoid incidents. Many countries around the world follow these standards. NFPA 2112 and NFPA 2113 are the two such standards that provide guidance. They also educate people about their safety in the health risking environment.
The purpose of FRCs is to protect the people in a hazardous occupational environment. NFPA 2112 is similarly about the protection against flash fire.
Flash fire is a sudden and intense fire that can last for a short period of time. Flash fire is a constant risk for the people working in that environment. This standard specifies the protection requirements, test method, and components of flame retardant.
It also mentions the certification requirements for flash fire garments. These types of fire-resistant clothes are only for short-time thermal exposure.
This standard helps to lessen your confusion and gives a clear picture of your safety gear. It is also about the short-duration thermal exposure. NFPA 2112 does not tell about the correct selection and usage of your flame retardants. NFPA 2113 specifies not only selection and usage but also care and maintenance of your FRC.
The goal of both standards for fire-resistant garments is to ensure that you buy the correct one. NFPA 2113 assists in picking the right one for you according to the criteria of NFPA 2112.
These standards, especially NFPA 2113 guides you on how to keep those garments. You should know how to repair your garment. Make sure that you discard your garment when it is beyond repair. NFPA 2113 is your maneuver standard in case you are planning to start the FR clothing program.
