Nightwear is intended to be worn primarily for sleeping or activities related to sleeping and normally worn directly on the skin. Therefore there is an increased risk of burn injuries in case such articles catch fire from a candle, match, lighter or a similar items.

The UK also has a regulation on nightwear safety “The Nightwear (Safety) Regulations 1985” (as amended) and in this webinar we are going to discuss various requirements of this regulation.
