With high visibility clothing, you can rest assured that your coworkers and people moving past the worksite can see you. Short sleeve and long sleeve shirts help define your arms and ensure that you are easily seen. Even if the weather conditions are poor, you will still be visible to heavy machinery operators, drivers and your fellow workers on the ground.
The most visible colors are bright yellow, orange and safety green. These shades do not blend in with backgrounds of gray skies, dirt fields or black roadways. You can even bump up the safety factor further by choosing clothing with reflective tape sewn in. This makes you more visible at night and in poor weather conditions.
Even if your company provides you with vests, it’s still wise to wear high visibility shirts beneath the vest. You will enjoy greater protection even if you are on break and decide to slip out of the vest for a little while. It also clearly defines your extremities to effectively reduce your chances of being involved in an accident.
