Flash Fire Protection
A flash fire is a rapid moving flame that can be caused by a diffuse fuel, such as dust, gas, or the vapors of an ignitable liquid, without the production of damaging pressure. While flash fires cannot be completely prevented, there are precautionary steps you can take to give you and your crew an extra advantage if a flash fire were to occur.
A person’s ability to survive a burn injury is determined by their age, how serious it is, and how much they are burned.
The Steel Grip PPE experts provide a wide range of tools and resources on how to select the right PPE clothing.
