What is High Visibility (Hi-Vis) workwear?
High visibility workwear is clothing and wearable items (shirts, pants, vests, bibs, jackets, overalls etc) that are designed to be clearly seen and noticeable through their high reflective properties. Its purpose is to allow you to be visible at dusk, dawn, night, day as well as fog and haze. All high visibility workwear is bright and perforated tape is added to some items for those darker conditions and poor visibility situations.
Why do I need High Visibility workwear?
High Visibility workwear is essential in many industries and is hugely effective in making the workplace safer and reducing the risk of collision.
High-visibility items have many benefits making the workplace safer for tradesmen, road crews, service personal, emergency responders and the like. An example is the safety of road crews as the high-vis workwear is designed to allow you to be seen by the drivers of vehicles sooner and more readily.
Wearing high-vis workwear is common practice and crucial around heavy equipment and machinery. Other important situations are poor weather conditions, construction workers on large building sites, large crowds, and road projects.
How do I maintain my Hi-Vis clothing?
Take good care of all your high visibility clothing as the dirtier they get the less effective it becomes. Make sure that they are washed regularly by following the wash and care instructions and it is recommended to wash inside out to protect the perforated tape.
