Flame Resistant Fabrics
If the job calls for flame resistant workwear, it’s pretty important to know your fabric options, and which one is best for you to use. The very first, and one of the most important, thing to remember about fabrics when working in a fire hazardous job is no synthetic materials. Even your undergarments need to be natural fibers. Think 100 percent cotton, or silk, but watch out for polyester blends. Because polyester will melt right onto your body in the case of an accident, it’s best to just steer clear of it. Flame resistant workwear comes in a variety of fabrics, and depending on your job, one might be a better fit than another. Let’s look at a few options, and how they might be used.

While overalls are generally worn with a shirt and made of denim fabric, coveralls have a little bit more variety. You can find coveralls sized to fit over your clothing, or as your clothing, depending on your workwear needs. They come in a variety of colors, and even have different closures. While overalls usually just have straps that come over your shoulders and hook, coveralls tend to cover your whole torso as well as your legs. They come in short or long sleeve, depending on what you need. So how do you determine what you actually need?
