OSHA recommends that everyone who works with electrical components wear FR Clothing (FR). This doesn’t mean just electricians or those who work along utility lines. Proper attire and safety gear impacts workplace safety, and employee productivity, too.
Workplace safety is often thought to include training, safety requirements, physical fitness and avoiding hazards on the job. Still, employees’ clothing and work wear can also play a significant role in their safety on the job.
Who Should Wear FR Uniforms?
While many employers use FR garments for their maintenance and electrical employees, there are still many other employees who could benefit from the safety of FR uniforms. Any employee who works in a hazardous environment, which can include:
- Electric Arc – electricians, utility lineman and workers
- Flash Fire – oil or gas refinery, pharmaceutical workers and those who work with chemicals
- Combustible Dust Explosion – paper mills, paint, and even food processors are just a few examples
- Anyone who comes in contact with functional and live electrical equipment
Help Employees Avoid Injuries with Proper Work Uniforms
FR uniforms offer more protection to employees, which also means fewer on-the-job injuries, reduced workers’ compensation claims and insurance premiums, fewer days away from work, more productive employees and a better reputation as an employer.

How Can You Tell a Garment is FR Rated?
ARC Flash class information is clearly labeled on the tag of each FR garment, and in some cases, even on an emblem on the outside of the garment. Every Bulwark FR garment, however, includes an easily identifiable, external Bulwark emblem so you and your employees will avoid any confusion between non-FR and FR garments.
