High Visibility Clothing – The Facts….
The first part of the standard relates to the area of conspicuous materials incorporated into the garment. There are 3 distinct categories:
- Class 3 - Highest Protection Level
- Class 2 - Intermediate Protection Level
- Class 1 - Lowest Protection Level
The second part relates to the retro-reflective performance with Class 2 being more visible than Class 1 when seen in headlights during darkness.
Care and Maintenance….
Cleaner garments reflect more light and are more effective. Ensure they are washed regularly and replaced when they become worn out
Wear the clothing correctly….
Make sure that the garment is fastened where possible to ensure maximum protection and prevent tangling in any machinery or moving objects
