Safety Tip of the Week:

Week of May 20, 2019

When it comes to understanding body armor there can be confusion over which type of body armor protects against which type of ammunition.  Understanding the NIJ 0101.06 armor protection levels is clearly explained.  The term "Bullet Proof" is a widely used term that is inaccurate and paints a picture that it cannot be penetrated.  Any body armor has the potential to be penetrated.  There are various levels of protection that must be adhered to in the law enforcement world.  The (Justice Technology Information Center) JTIC Understanding NIJ 0101.06 Armor Protection Levels is a snapshot of the projectile threats and classification of body armor related to these threats.  Here is NIJ complete info on Body Armor


FR Clothing- Flame Resistant Clothing

Flame Resistant (FR) clothing is needed in industries where there is a threat for a flash fire, momentary electric arc and molten metal splashes. ANSI/ISEA107-2010 says, "Products must pass mandatory testing in order to be considered flame resistant (FR)."  Flame resistant clothing will provide protection against the ignition of clothing and the spread of flame and will extinguish when the ignition source is removed.

When choosing FR clothing be sure that all components of the clothing are flame resistant and have been tested using industry standards.  The clothing should be sewn with flame resistant zippers and accessories.  This is a purchase where quality makes a difference in the protection that you will receive from the garment.
