Can I use your electrical arc flash products in the food industry?
Within the food industry, consideration must be provided for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, or HACCP. This is a systematic preventive approach to food safety from biological, chemical, and physical hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe and designs measures to reduce these risks to a safe level.
Arc flash PPE can contain materials that would be unsafe within the food production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe. An example would be the use of non-metal components such as buttons and ear canal inserts. Metal detectors are often used as part of the employer’s preventative approach to food safety, but would not catch these hazardous arc flash PPE components.
Oberon can customize any arc flash garment to use only hook & loop closures, i.e. Velcro. Contact Oberon for assistance with your arc flash PPE selection when using the products within a food processing environment.
