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.

Four Tips for Compliance with ANSI/ISEA 107 for High-Visibility Apparel

High Visibility Yellow Workwear

Being compliant with ANSI/ISEA 107 regulations for high-visibility apparel has never been more important. Here are four tips to make sure your high-visibility apparel is compliant with ANSI/ISEA 107 standards. In the need for new high-visibility products? Check out Ergodyne and OccuNomix for exceptional hi-vis products.

The first step (and easiest, if you ask us) is to purchase a high-visibility product that is ANSI 107 compliant. You’ll know if it is compliant by its tag. 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. In order to be ANSI 107 compliant, the top number must be either 2 or 3. This means the high-visibility garment is either class 2 or class 3. Continue Reading…

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…

OSHA Updates on New Industry Regulations and Standards

OSHA Standard Changes 2012

When there’s a safety problem or hazard in the workplace, people call the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, more commonly known as OSHA. It’s the main federal agency charged with the enforcement of safety and health legislation. And as it turns out, 2011 was a busy year for OSHA. More than 200,000 people sought assistance from OSHA in 2011, through either the toll-free 800 number or through email.

OSHA’s records show that nearly 43,000 of those who called the 800 number did so to file a complaint about workplace hazards. More than 32,000 people contacted OSHA through its email correspondence system. And more than 9,200 of those who called the 800 number selected the Spanish language option. All in all, OSHA conducted nearly 30,000 on-site visits to small business worksites in 2011, covering 1.3 million workers, approving 101 new Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) sites and re-approving 291 more.

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…
