Some of the craft people I worked with at Peach Bottom and TMI claimed to develope a rash from the OREX scrubs.  They got a doctors note, which allowed them to opt-out of the OREX requirement.

I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering if anyone else is having issues with workers devloping rashes attributed to Orex. ???

Surry had a supply of cloth modesties & PCs for people who got rashes from the OREX.

I ordered them for all of our guys.
They were in the 90 degree heat, humidity, rain, you name it.
Not one of our guys ever had any problems with them.
This was over a 6 month period, and it was the disposable coveralls.

Yeah...........seems like every outage there are a couple (2-3) of workers that have a reaction to the OREX.  It's a small population of people and you can tell they really don't do well in them.  Most sites have a supply of cotton scrubs that HAVE to be worn by welders, so we just toss them a pair of those.

I have worn white orex for a couple of years and had no problem. I put on a set of the green orex modesties and much to my surprise I had a nasty, fairly quick rash. Anyone else had the same problem? I still have no issue with the white, maybe it is the dye??? I have not tried the green modesties since then.

I break out from them but then again I also break out from the laundered depending on what they wash them in.  Clear caladryl or benadryl spray is your best friend when this happens.  Those won't make you sleepy like popping a few benadryl can, and will help keep it from getting too bad  (not sure what one vendor used, but at one plant I ended up with blisters from repeated exposure to what ever they washed the PCs in)
