Here are a few guidelines when choosing which safety apparel to go with:
Things to Consider When Selecting High Visibility Apparel
To determine if Class 2 or Class 3 garments, or Public Safety Vests are the most appropriate high visibility clothing, an assessment should include:
- Type of work being done (repaving, maintenance, police detail)
- Working conditions: time of day, temperature, weather
- Type of roadway, traffic pattern, congestion and speed
- Compliance with ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 or 2010 and ANSI 207-2006
- State and local standards and guidelines
When Should High Visibility Safety Apparel Be Replaced?
High visibility clothing does not last forever. Poor color contrast, low or no reflectivity, and deteriorating reflective strips would render a high visibility safety garment unacceptable for use. High visibility safety apparel should be replaced when it becomes faded, torn, dirty, soiled, worn, or defaced, or if it is not visible at 1,000 feet day or night. The service life of high visibility apparel depends on the type of work an individual performs while wearing the garment. If you think your safety apparel is questionable, you should replace it. Apparel that is worn on a daily basis has a service life expectancy of approximately 6 months, although apparel that is not worn on a daily basis may have a useful service life of up to 3 years.
Factors that may cause apparel to wear out more quickly, depending on the amount of use, include increased exposure to sunlight, heat and more strenuous jobs likely to lead to soiling or tears. In addition, to prolong the life of the garment, you must follow manufacturers’ instructions for laundering and storage.
Old apparel should be cut in half so that it can’t be reused.
