Guide to FR Standards:
Protecting your workers
from the dangers of
heat energy

How can safety managers select the right type of FR protective clothing for the task?

There are several industrial situations that expose workers to the risks of heat energy, such as flash fires, molten metal splashes and vapours.

Finding the right PPE for protection against this is essential, as making the wrong choice could lead to life changing injuries or even death.

However, with so many multiple FR standards to consider, it can be confusing for Safety Managers to determine which FR protective clothing application is best suited to each task.

Having a clear understanding of how heat energy is produced and the different tests to assess protection against them is critical.

This means looking beyond meaningless and potentially misleading statements regarding level of heat protection such as “this garment will protect against a radiant heat source at a temperature of 1000°c”.

Our eBook looks at the key elements to help safety managers select FR clothing including:

  • Why FR standards are commonly misunderstood, and the implications of following only basic compliance.
  • The different types of heat energy your workers could be exposed to and additional factors you need to consider.
  • An expert guide to the key standards for primary and secondary FR clothing: EN 11612 and EN 14116.
  • The different types of tests that are used to certify FR protective garments and what the pass levels mean for real-world application.
