High Visibility (Hi-Vis) Vests
November 24, 2008-
The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued new requirements for workers on federal-aid highways.
The Code of Federal Regulations 634.3- states: "All workers within the right-of-way of a Federal-aid highway who are exposed either to traffic
(vehicles using the highway for purposes of travel) or to construction equipment within the work area shall wear high-visibility safety apparel."
The regulation specifies
ANSI/ISEA 107 Class 2 or Class 3 High-Visibility apparel, such as a vest.
Nothing is more important than keeping your workers SAFE!
When there's a possibility of physical injury or death on the job, high-visibility safety apparel is absolutely essential! When it comes to traffic safety, a high-visibility safety vest is an industry standard!
ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 was developed to protect workers who are exposed to low visibility hazards.
Whether you're looking for Surveyors Vests, Traffic Safety Vests, Construction Style Vests, DOT Vests, Economy Vests, PVC Signage Vests, Public Service Vests, Fire Resistant Vests, or Canadian Safety Vests, in ANSI Class II, Class III, ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 or ANSI/ISEA207-2006 Standards,

High Visibility Vests
For emergency personnel deployed on roadways in response to an accident or other emergency situation, high visibility vests serve as a first line of defense against dangerous highway traffic. The latest standard from the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) outlines important design and performance criteria for vests worn by police officers, firefighters, emergency medical services (EMS) and other public safety personnel in such instances.
ANSI/ISEA 207-2006, High Visibility Public Safety Vests, is specifically designed to increase the safety and visibility of these emergency responders. Particularly critical during low-light conditions and inclement weather, vests that meet ANSI/ISEA 207-2006 combine fluorescent and retro-reflective materials for enhanced visibility under even the most compromised lighting conditions. The standard also includes important design options for break-away features. Fastened with Velcro rather than zippers, buttons or a sewn seam, break-away vests can be pulled quickly and easily away from a responder’s body, should it become caught on a passing vehicle.
ANSI/ISEA 207 also includes features specific to the needs of emergency responders, such as a cut-out side for police officer’s weapons or EMS belt-mounted equipment. The standard also specifies garment dimensions such that the vest can be sufficiently large enough to be worn over a firefighter’s coat. Finally, to clearly and visibly differentiate between different types of emergency personnel, ANSI/ISEA 207 also allows for color-specific markings on the vest panel or trim to distinguish between police, fire and EMS responders.
