Wyoming Rules on Fire Retardant Clothing

Graham Marshall - Wednesday, April 10, 2013

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is implementing rules that require flame-resistant (FR) clothing be worn by all workers within 75 feet radius of a well bore.

An additional new rule also that mandates emergency shut-down devices be installed on all diesel engines used on a drilling rig. 

The rules were proposed by the Wyoming Occupational Safety and Health Commission in October 2012. 

The new rules incorporate recommendations from a broad range of stakeholders and considered public comments received during a public hearing in October and input received over a 90-day public comment period. 

For more information about DWS’s OSHA division and services such as the Wyoming Safety Fund or the longstanding OSHA safety consultation program, call (307) 777-7786.
