When Should I Wear Safety Jackets & Safety Pants?
In general, those who are exposed to heavy machinery, roadway traffic, construction or excavation sites, and work other OSHA-regulated jobs should invest in the proper safety equipment. When you’re in a work environment that’s susceptible to accidents, taking precaution by wearing the gear can help you avoid unwanted injury.
What is a class 3 safety vest?
Class 3 clothing is worn by workers in areas with a high amount of automobile traffic that travels at speeds of 50mph or higher. This includes utility crews, emergency responders and site inspectors. These vests, jackets and long-sleeve t-shirts include a minimum of 310 square inches of reflective tape to make the worker’s silhouette highly visible.
What’s the difference between orange hi-vis clothing and green hi-vis clothing?
Those working on busy roads during daytime will most likely use orange hi-vis clothing, as it contrasts the blue sky, green landscape and stands out even in bright light. Green hi-vis clothing is mostly used at night or indoors where lighting isn’t as good. To better assess which color you should choose, take a look at the surroundings of your work environment and try to pick the color that stands out the most. Or, reach out to your employer to better understand regulations.
