Reflective Safety Vests are worn in a large number of workers in many different industries. From construction workers to truck drivers to toll takers and landscapers, many workers find the need to increase their visibility and safety by wearing a reflective safety vest or some other type of reflective clothing. Hi vis vests are generally rated as either a Class 2 vest or a Class 3 vest, depending on the amount of reflective material. Most vests come in either orange or yellow, but the color does not affect its class rating.
Safety vests also come in different styles. For the warm summer months, workers usually find it more comfortable to wear a light weight mesh vest rather than one made of solid fabric. Also, in the warm weather a reflective T-shirt is a good option. Also, Hi Vis rain jackets and Hi Vis Rain Pants are available to increase worker safety when rain reduces driver visibility. Reflective safety clothing is a good way to increase safety no matter what the weather.
