According to research from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), electrical shock results in approximately 4,000 non-disabling injuries annually, 3,600 disabling injuries annually and one death daily in the U.S. To help facility managers and safety and risk prevention professionals improve employee safety programs, Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) has announced a free workshop series on NFPA 70E and flame-resistant clothing.

“Many organizations are actively looking to understand how to properly protect employees who are exposed to electric shock, fires and explosions,” said John Rudy, Senior Manager of Strategy and Marketing, Cintas Uniform Rental. “Through these workshops, we look forward to providing participants with up-to-date, accurate information and tips for protecting employees who are working on or around energized equipment.”

Hosted by Cintas and featuring guest speakers from The Hilgeman Group, Inc. and Westex, the complimentary workshops will discuss NFPA 70E, 2112 and 2113, as well as OSHA’s 1910.132 clarification on flame-resistant clothing.

With more than 50 years of advanced testing and manufacturing, Westex, Inc. is a world leader of FR fabrics.
