This session will focus on several emerging trends in AR/FR clothing, involving both the garments themselves and the service providers. We will examine significant advances in comfort and style, knits, base layers and hi vis garments. We’ll also look at the advantages of layering, hidden risks and how to do it safely, as well as sourcing models that drive successful programs.
