  4. The ABCs of FR Clothing

    Understanding the ins and outs of FR clothing can go a long way toward protecting oil and gas workers from burn injuries and fatalities. There’s a lot to learn when it comes to implementing an effective FR clothing program, but the following A-to-Z glossary of FR protection is a great place to start.

    Arc Rating

    Value describing a fabric’s performance in electrical arc discharge tests that determine how much energy can pass through the fabric before there is a 50 percent probability of second-degree burns.

    Base Layer

    Clothing worn underneath primary FR clothing should also be flame-resistant for added safety.

    Char Length

    A measurement used to assess FR clothing performance based on the amount of damaged fabric when a Vertical Flame Test (ASTM D6413) is performed.

  • The challenge of replacing lockout with interlocks

    The eternal battle is production versus safety, and at the very center of this is lockout, or better – avoiding lockout. The complaint, by both production and maintenance is that locking out equipment takes too long, or if they lockout, getting the machine back on line could be difficult. They will also argue that the machines have interlock controls that provide effective levels of protection and allow workers to efficiently (and safely) complete their work. The truth: maybe, maybe not.

    Interlock systems (machine sensors)

    An interlock is a device that will prevent one element from changing (moving), due to a state in another element. Interlocks in the work setting include electromagnetic switches, RFID proximity switches, light curtains, trap key interlock’s, etc. Interlocks open control circuits but do not isolate equipment from hazardous energy.

  • Falls a persistent cause of work-related death

    Falls remain a persistent cause of work-related death, and workers in construction and oil and gas extraction are more likely than other workers to die from falling, according to National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) research published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine.

    Investigators analyzed fatal falls using records from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries. To estimate the rates of fatal falls in different occupations and groups of workers, they used population estimates from the BLS Current Population Survey. They identified 8,880 worker deaths from falls at work from 2003 to 2014. Most of these falls occurred in construction and oil and gas extraction when a worker fell from a higher to a lower level, rather than from falls on the same level. Most of the deaths were among men, who died from work-related falls more
