High Visibility Clothing And The Law
The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 set out the many factors that must be considered when choosing the correct PPE. The clothing must be suitable for the job and this can range from a single hi-vis waistcoat to a full hi-vis boilersuit.
In addition the clothing must be suitable for the worker, compatible with other PPE and meet clothing standards such as BS EN 471 for hi-visibility clothing.
The Hazards Faced At Work:
Construction sites – When working on construction sites there are daily dangers and hi-vis clothing must always be worn to prevent incidents and fatalities occurring when operating plant and machinery.
Work on roadways orfootpaths – When working on roadways or footpaths, hi-vis clothing protects both those working and any passing vehicles by ensuring any employees can be easily seen.
