Labor Department to Host Breakfast Roundtable


WETHERSFIELD – The importance of selecting the correct type of flame resistant clothing will be discussed during a Breakfast Roundtable Discussion Group meeting sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health.

Guest speaker Peter Kumiega, New England sales manager for Bulwark FR Apparel, will provide information and answer questions during the 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. roundtable meeting to be held at the agency’s Central Office, 200 Folly Brook Blvd. in, Wethersfield on Aug. 18.

The morning session will include a continental breakfast.

“When it comes to selecting this type of clothing, employers and their employees face many options,” explains John Able, CONN-OSHA Certified Safety Professional and coordinator of the Breakfast Roundtable Discussion Group.  “As a certified trainer with more than 15 years of experience in the flame resistant industry, Peter will use his expertise to help guide people in the right direction.”

Kumiega will focus on three points: understanding flame resistant options and how they relate to NFPA 70e and 2012 standards; the effects of the new OSHA standard 1910.269; and tips for partnering with a supplier that can meet specific company needs.

According to Able, admission to the seminar is free, but pre-registration is required. Please contact Able at able.john@dol.gov or call him at (860) 263 – 6902 to register for the breakfast roundtable or for additional information.
