How to Conduct a Field Flame Test
In response to a request from within the performing arts industry, Actsafe has just produced and launched a new video on how to conduct a field flame test to determine if a material is properly flame retarded.
The video discusses what to look for to see if a material is already properly flame retarded; when to test materials; where to look for information and, of course, how to conduct a field flame test.
Please note: A field flame test should only be conducted when a material’s flame retardant documentation is not available. It is a last resort to check for flame retardation. When testing, only a sample of the material should be tested.
Actsafe would like to thank Erin Neely of Hollynorth Production Supplies for her participation in the making of this video.
Assessment of Ice Melt Products
Representatives of BC’s Film & Television Industry approached Actsafe in 2007 over concerns regarding ice melt products being used to assist in clearing walkways. These products tended to increase the conductivity of electricity, and electricians working on film sites were receiving electrical shocks. Research on ice melt products was requested.
Actsafe approached UBC’s School of Environmental Health to conduct research on this issue. This document includes their comments and recommendations.
