National Safety Month is observed every June in the United States. It’s sponsored by the National Safety Council (NSC) with the motto: SafeForLife. Each week supports a different theme, such as Stand Ready to Respond, Be Healthy, Watch Out for Dangers, and Share Roads Safely. The NSC offers materials that are easily downloadable for each topic. The overall goal of the NSC is to reduce the leading causes of accidents and death on the job, in homes, on the road, and within communities.
Although training is a big part of safety, there are also numerous products that can help to reduce injuries and death. Textiles are an important part of safety in many workplaces. For example, flame-retardant vinyl laminated polyester fabrics can be used for tarpaulins, gym floor covers, divider curtains, and other industrial and general purpose covers. This type of textile can be successfully used in homes, schools, and in the workplace.
Another great flame-retardant textile is the 745 FR PV-coated membrane which provides a strong polyester base fabric that’s combined with a thick, knife-coated PVC layer for more heavy duty applications such as light structures, canopies, fixed awnings, tents, and partition curtains.
According to the American Chemistry Council, “Flame retardants are a key component in reducing the devastating impact of fires on people, property and the environment.” Textiles that are flame resistant or fire retardant help to stop fires, prevent fires from spreading, and keep damage from fires to a minimum. One product that can help to provide protection from fire and water is the Sattler – Firemaster Plus. This flame resistant mod-acrylic fabric is used as awning fabric and comes in a variety of colors.
