ANSI Safety Workwear – How Much Visibility is Necessary for My Job?

high-visibility-workwear

Just as every occupation requires a variety of different tools needed for the job, every profession also requires different safety workwear.  Depending on the tasks and the risks involved, workers must choose apparel that will ensure their safety while on the job.  The American National Standards Institute, or ANSI, is a private, not-for-profit organization which approves standards for a multitude of fields with the goal of assuring safety and health while also protecting the environment. ANSI has approved of standards on safety workwear which can serve as guidelines for workers interested in selecting the right clothing for their profession.

A worker must know the difference between ANSI Class 3 high visibility clothing, Class 2 clothing and non-ANSI apparel and when it is appropriate to wear each type of garment.   So, what distinguishes one type from the other and how do you know which one is right for your job? Continue Reading…

High Visibility Clothing

High Visibility Clothing

Our friends at ANSI have approved three main classes of clothing regarding visibility: namely, Classes 1, 2, and 3 (surprised?). Actually, there is a class E that’s only for work pants and shorts. When these are worn with Class 2 or 3 garments, they add up to Class 3 coverage.

The higher the class number, the higher the visibility. This is based on the amount of background material (often bright orange, red or green–you want to stand out from your surroundings), the width of the reflective tape, and the photometric performance of the tape (how reflective it is, right?). Except for Class E, all High Visibility clothing must contain 360 degrees of reflective taping around the torso.

The high-visibility garment must have a label that has a pictogram of a vest or a drawing that depicts the actual garment itself. There also must be two numbers next to that drawing.

High-Visibility Clothing: The Right Choice in Any Weather

High Visibility Clothing

If there’s two things we know about high-visibility workwear, it’s these: It’s important to wear, and most workers hate to. The reasons for wearing it are obvious and important; it provides much-needed visibility in hazardous road-side work environments. But the worker’s reasons fornot wearing it are just as valid. It’s uncomfortable. It’s cumbersome. It gets in the way, making more trouble than it’s worth. At least, in the eyes of the wearer. Continue Reading…

Understanding Compliance Requirements for High-Visibility Safety Clothing

High Visibility Clothing Requirements

To most people, a safety vest is a safety vest. Orange or lime green, big or small, it’s all the same. But one look at some sobering statistics, and you’ll realize otherwise. You’ll realize the importance of having the correct and compliant safety vest for your line of work.

According to the 2011 NSC Injury Fact Book, there were 667 fatalities and 28,958 injuries in work zone crashes in 2009. That’s almost two deaths per day. And it’s two too many. These statistics show that struck-by accidents remain a major workplace hazard. And they outline the importance of making sure your safety vest is fully compliant.

Because the fact is, it’s easy to wear one that isn’t compliant, without even knowing it. High-visibility apparel has become an iconic part of the image of the blue-collar worker. You see them in commercials on road construction workers, airline and transportation workers, law enforcement and other service personnel. And most of those times, in those commercials, they’re wearing a vest that isn’t compliant. Continue Reading…
