Production Employment

There are a number of industries that require FR protection.  This chart of recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) production employment numbers illustrates the trend in FR protection.  Those workers on the production line or “in the trenches” of these industries need to be protected from fire hazards.

Purposes and Types of FRC

You might be familiar with the way we reference cut protection on other pages: there is no cut-proof glove.  Well, there is no FR clothing that is fireproof.  The primary function of FR clothing is to limit burn injuries sustained by workers.

Here are some of the most important reasons workers wear flame-resistant (FR) clothing:

  • Does not ignite, melt, drip, or continue burning
  • Increases one’s probability of surviving the hazards mentioned above
  • Insulates the wearer from heat
  • Maintains a barrier from flames
  • Resists being broken apart
  • Provides workers with escape time
  • Reduces burn injuries

OSHA states that flame-resistant clothing “is a type of apparel that is made out of material that is meant to self-extinguish once the ignition source has been removed.”  There is a plethora of FR garments available that meet this requirement.  They come in a variety of garment types and styles.

MCR Safety offers a wide range of FR garments, utilizing a variety of different fabrics certified to numerous FR standards. Click on any image to immediately start viewing available styles.

Features

Features…features…and more features! We all love features… Right?  When someone finds themselves engulfed in flames, the last thing they want is to get stuck in their garment due to a faulty zipper.  Can you save some money with a less expensive zipper or less stitching found on some of our competitors’ FR clothing? Yes, you can. However, the better question to ask is do you want to reduce features, fabric quality, or technology knowing the fire risks workers face?  As we point out on the Flash Fire performance page, a burn injury costs well above $200,000 on average.  Reducing features is not recommended to cut corners with this hazard.

It may sound a little dramatic, but wearing flame-resistant clothing (FRC) that exceeds performance requirements for burn rate, fabrics, zippers, pockets, and buttons may be the difference between life and death.  Here are some of the features to pay attention to when selecting an MCR Safety FR garment.  Across each dedicated FR product page, you will find a list of three features that separate this type of product from the crowd.

Durable elastic cuffs
Pass-Through Pockets

Heavy Duty two way YKK® brass zipper
Easy release suspenders

We know FR safety clothing can be personal in nature and workers’ needs vary.  This is why we offer a wide range of FR garments, including jackets, jeans, shirts, coveralls, and overalls.  Our goal, as stated in the beginning, is one thing – protect you from workplace hazards.  

Let us help keep you protected from workplace fires.
