OccuNomix International, one of only nine manufacturing companies making the commitment to ban polyester materials in their high visibility flame resistant (FR) clothing line, has been recognized for their efforts in the February 2012 edition of ArcWear's prestigious publication, ArcWear / e-Hazard Arc Flash & Safety Newsletter.

"We are very proud to be recognized by ArcWear," said Jennifer McCoy, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "As an industry leader, we have the responsibility of not only ensuring that our flame resistant clothing is manufactured to the highest level of safety but to educating our distributors and consumers on the dangers of wearing and selling polyester treated garments. We are committed to this effort," said McCoy.

OccuNomix continues to urge all distributors and consumers to confirm that all high visibility garment components and layers (including interior layers of winter liners) are truly flame resistant by verifying that the flame resistant product meets the new FR standards; specifically, NFPA 2112, ASTM F1506, NFPA 1971 and NFPA 1975 among others (ANSI 107 and CSA Z96 both contain lists of the appropriate standards.)

Consumers are advised that NFPA 701 may appear as a clothing standard but in fact is a drapery standard and not to be used to determine flammability on clothing of any type.

The Flame Resistant High Visibility Collection manufactured by OccuNomix consists of true arc rated products and meets all FR standards.

ArcWear, founded by Hugh Hoagland and recognized as one of the world's foremost experts on electrical arc testing and safety, works with a variety of industries and standards organizations to develop and test new arc safety products and services.

OccuNomix International is the world's leading designer and manufacturer of high visibility safety apparel, ergonomic supports and prevention products for cold, heat stress and fire. The company combines industry expertise and innovative technology to develop their product line for a variety of industries including but not limited to construction, mining, refinery and transportation.
