Protection inside and out
Flame retardant underwear reduces the extent of burns compared with standard cotton underwear, and should be used in addition to flame retardant mid and outer layers.
A flame retardant base layer provides increased protection. If exposed to a flash fire, it will significantly reduce the risk of second and third degree burns compared to wearing standard cotton underwear. The appropriate base layer will also wick away moisture from the body and protect against cold.
A mid layer is necessary in cold weather to provide additional insulation. The mid layer should be more loose-fitting than the base layer, as this leaves insulating air between the layers. Flame retardant mid layer garments provide the best protection against hazards in the workplace. This is especially true where there is a risk of exposure to an electric arc.
