I work in a local government facility, as a foreman for an electrical installation dept., in a convention center. The administration requires us to wear uniforms, and they supply them. But they are polyester. Shirts and pants. In my experience as a lineman, in another state, this was Deadly. I don't get any kind of reaction when I tell them this, and they refuse to change the vendor or style. We are not governed by OSHA. What do I do, or provide as proof to the county, to steer away from further injury during a flash, or elect. fire.?
