    Default NFPA 1500 Amendment regarding eye protection

    Does anyone know which magazine this was featured in a few months ago? and perhaps what month? It says something along the lines that eye protection is no longer required to me attached to the helmet for the helmet to be NFPA 1500 compliant..

    Thanks

    nfpa 1500 regards osha standards for the fire dept.

    The amendment was to NFPA 1971 regarding helmet compliance. The nfpa no longer requires goggles to be attached to the helmet at all times, but must be on the wearer for the helmet to meet the requirement. Or you could always go with the 4 in shield :vomit:
