High-Vis Apparel for Construction, Warehouse and Industrial Workplaces
The use of high visibility (HV) clothing is an important and inexpensive precaution to put into effect, but it plays a major role in maintaining safety and preventing accidents. We'd like to take a moment to explain why HV clothing is important in the workplace.
High-visibility clothing can help reduce the risk of accidents and fatalities in busy environments where there is vehicular traffic or heavy locations with industrial activity. At locations such as these, high visibility workwear is often required by Health and Safety
(OSHA) General Duty Clause regulations. In this type of environment or when working near entrance and exit areas, reflective over vests or jackets are should be required as a minimum. Professional Health & Safety advisers often point this out when carrying out a local risk assessment and advising employers and company management.
