High visibility clothing and reflective gear are diverse and
have numerous applications across a variety of instances and careers. High
visibility clothing makes workers easy to spot and is a necessary safety
measure for those who operate moving vehicles and equipment.
High visibility clothing and reflective gear serve two main
purposes. They make the wearer more obviously visible to vehicular traffic and
make them stand out against their background environment. Highly visible fabric
(such as orange or yellow neons) and retro-reflective tape are commonly used.
These are the uniforms of those who work in construction,
and other occupations. There are numerous classes and standards of high
visibility garments. The best ones depend on your specific situation.
High Visibility Clothing Class 1
Class 1 garments are suited to low-risk situations involving
slow-moving vehicles and ample room between the workers and traffic, and an
environment where the workers are easily seen. Parking lot attendants and
warehouse workers utilize Class 1 garments.
High Visibility Clothing Class 2
These garments are worn by workers who encounter medium
hazard levels from vehicles that exceed 25 MPH, inclement weather, and
attention being diverted from oncoming traffic. Railway workers, school
crossing guards, and trash collectors are examples of those who wear Class 2
garments. Vests can be either class 2 or 3.
High Visibility Clothing Class 3
This class involves high levels of hazard from fast-moving
vehicles and working conditions which can reduce sight. Class 3 situations
involve workers with high task loads which distract them from oncoming traffic.
These garments ensure that workers are visible throughout a wide range of body
motion and easy to pick out of their environment. These garments include
retro-reflective material added to the arms and legs. Highway construction
workers and emergency responders wear class 3 garments.
High Visibility Clothing Class E
Class E is the highest class of
and combines class 2 or 3 vests with high visibility
pants for increased visibility at night. Nighttime highway construction workers
and first responders commonly use these garments.
