My question is related to anti-static clothing. Should operators that handle flammable liquids or combustible dust always where anti-static clothing? Thanks
Yes, they must wear anti-static clothing to prevent fire due to static charge.
Anti static shoes shall also be used at the time of work in flammable liquids or combustible dust.
Static charge collectors can also be installed in the areas.
Thank you. I have been researching the NFPA regs. Some of the regs refer to anti-static clothing and others refer to FR clothing. These have different properties. Should we ask our uniform vendor to provide both properties?
The combustible standard 654 refers to flame resistant, but I feel like we should have anti-static clothing to prevent static charge rather than FR. What are your thoughts?
Yea, you are right.
We must use anti-static clothing rather than FR clothing.
FR clothing will not help to stop static charge generation.
