Title The benefits of flame retardant clothing
Bibliographic information Aug. 1991, No.100, p.27-28.
Abstract This paper briefly describes 3 fire incidents where workers were protected by flame retardant clothing. The examples illustrate that the wearing of such clothing has a role in avoiding or minimising injuries when unforeseen circumstances or equipment failure create a potentially dangerous situation.
