Hi-Viz Work Apparel: Increased Visibility and Added Safety on the Jobsite

For many occupations such as the construction trades and other heavy industries, the job site can be a dangerous place, with multiple activities competing for one's attention at the same time. In environments like these, it's critical to make yourself visible and not blend into your surroundings, especially when vehicles and other heavy equipment are involved.

High Visibility Safety Apparel (HVSA), often shortened to just "Hi-Viz" or "Hi-Vis," includes a range of apparel options made from bright, technical fabrics that are highly visible in various backgrounds. The most common colors are fluorescent yellow/green and orange and include retroreflective taping accents for an additional level of visibility that reflects light back towards its source.

LIFT Safety Hi-Viz apparel is ANSI Class 2 certified, which means each item meets the reflective clothing standards established back in 1999 (and updated in 2010) by ANSI. For a clothing item to achieve Class 2 certification, it must use a minimum of 775 square inches of safety yellow or orange material combined with at least 201 square inches of retroreflective striping material. By pairing bright colors with highly reflective materials, the result is a much higher level of visibility across various environments and light conditions.

So before heading off to that busy job site, make sure high-visibility clothing is a part of your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) so you are clearly visible to others. LIFT Safety's line of Hi-Viz apparel includes t-shirts, vests, jackets, and a hoodie that have each been designed to make you visible on the job site—no matter the conditions.

Pro Tip: Inspect Hi-Viz clothing items regularly and replace them when they become stained, dirty, or faded in order to avoid reduced visibility.
