The Ultimate Guide to Workwear

Hi Vis Workwear 2017: Your Ultimate Guide to High Visibility Clothing High-vis clothing or high visibility clothing are available in numerous different forms made from fluorescent materials, catering to the varying needs of different workplaces. Typically, hi vis clothes have reflective bands sewn into them that increase their reflective properties and increase visibility both day and night. The sun’s ultraviolet rays in daylight react with the fluorescent materials in order for them to appear glowing, whereas during night time, the reflective bands use the artificial lights from cars, head lights, portable lights or street lights to increase their visibility. There are different forms of high visibility clothing which include high-vis jackets and coats which are available for those needing additional protection from the elements when working in areas of low visibility, and also high-vis trousers for a complete high-vis uniform. Serving as temporary solutions for high visibility workwear in varying risk levels of working environments, smaller items such as high visibility shirts and waistcoats can be worn over uniforms or other items of clothing. High vis clothes are required in work environments or workplaces where visibility is poor or limited, that may include any elevated work areas, construction areas, and any external workplaces like train lines and roads. In choosing the right hi-vis clothing for your job, there are several factors that need to be considered such as risk levels, comfort, compatibility, and safety. High visibility clothing should be suitable for the risks presented in the workplace such as providing a full suit of jacket in darker working conditions and offering temporary options like waistcoats in places where visibility is not highly impaired. Wearing a high quality made high vis clothing is comfortable, not restricting the wearers from doing their jobs. High visibility work gear should not be too tight or hot to prevent workplace-related injuries and prevent workers from completing their task safely, effectively and efficiently. High visibility clothing should be compatible with other items of workplace’s protective workwear as an important part of PPE. When it comes to safety, there are a set of safety standards that must be followed that govern the quality of PPE and other safety gear. The safety standards for high visibility clothing that must be followed include the British Standard BS EN 471, and all new high visibility clothing should have the ‘CE’ mark that proves it has met this standard. As a responsible employer, you need to provide protection to the health and safety of your visitors, employees, and customers in your work premises, so it is important to adopt different health and safety protocols including those requiring hi-vis clothing.
