High Visibility

It is critical for employees to remain visible around moving vehicles or equipment.  In an effort to prevent injuries and fatalities from “struck-by” hazards, OSHA mandated that employees wear high-visibility garments in two specific circumstances: when they work near moving vehicles/equipment and when they are exposed to public vehicular traffic in the vicinity of excavations.  Both OSHA and the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recognize the American National Standards Institute/International Safety Equipment Association (ANSI/ISEA) 107 standard as the industry consensus standard for the performance requirements of high-visibility workwear.
