During the past several years, industrial operations, particularly the petroleum, petrochemical and chemical industries, have been actively addressing the growing hazard of flash fire. As a result of some of the recent industrial flash fire accidents, OSHA has forced industry to be proactive in implementing flash fire safety programs to protect their workforce.

"The Hilgeman Group conducted our flash fire hazard assessment, developed a program for us and trained all of our employees. We spoke to several vendors before selecting The Hilgeman Group. Their assistance was fantastic - professional, logical and made sense to our entire organization."

Steve McGillicudy, CSP - Chemfast, Inc.
The flash fire hazard can be deadly due to the burn injuries sustained during the exposure. A personís ability to survive an industrial burn is a function of three factors: the person's age, the severity of the burn, and amount of burn injury (% body surface area). As age, severity and amount of burn injury increase, survivability decreases. The most logical and cost-effective approach to minimizing the risk of serious body burn during a flash fire event is the implementation of a flame resistant garment program.
