    2015 Edition

    Protect industrial workers from thermal exposures with NFPA 2113's up-to-date provisions for PPE selection, use, and maintenance.

    Diffuse fuel contributes to rapid growth and spread of the fire, and any potential for short-term thermal exposure conditions requires protecting workers from burns and other risks in exposed areas. Provide life safety through NFPA 2113, Selection, Care, Use, and Maintenance of Flame-Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel Against Short-Duration Thermal Exposures from Fire.

    Developed primarily for garment end users to reduce the risks caused by incorrect maintenance, contamination, or damage, NFPA 2113 provides minimum requirements for the correct selection, care, use, and maintenance of flame-resistant clothing (FRC) compliant with the NFPA 2112, Standard on Flame-Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel Against Flash Fire for use in areas at risk.

    Changes in the 2015 NFPA 2113:

    • Revised name, scope, and application provisions for consistency with the Standard's broader concept of fire exposures.
    • New section on responsibility clarifies that both the employer and employee have specific responsibilities for selection, care, use, cleaning, and maintenance of protective garments.
    • New definitions for "risk" and "risk assessment" correlate with the new section in Chapter 4 permitting risk assessments to be used when evaluating where flame-resistant garments should be used.

    This widely used Standard is essential for any company or facility that handles or processes flammable gas, flammable or combustible liquids, or combustible dust that may accumulate and/or deflagrate, exposing personnel to short duration thermal exposures from fire.
