When you’re working in dangerous conditions, it’s important to make sure that you are seen. High visibility clothing is perfect for just that, and it has earned its place in a number of industries and recreational activities.
Both OSHA and the FHA have standards for high visibility apparel. Such clothing is categorized into three types (O, R, and P) and three classes (1, 2, and 3). Arborwear’s line of high-quality, Hi-Viz apparel meets the required safety standards, so you can remain visible while on the job.
Well, it could be a matter of your life. Settling for less than quality high visibility gear could compromise your visibility to the people around you. Take a study conducted by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOT) for example. After a test conducted in the ‘90s, the found that their workers were not actually visible from the side.
The United States soon created the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), setting a voluntary standard for high-visibility clothing. Reducing the chance of accidents, our standards today have led to the development of better visible clothing for workers.
And it isn’t just nighttime visibility that we need to be worried about—it’s daytime, too. Weather can factor into this—think snow, rain, and fog. Whenever you’re working outdoors, you want to take every step possible to ensure your safety. Arborwear’s reflective clothing can help!
With beginnings focused on creating gear for arborists, Arborwear soon grew to create a product that not only arborists admired, but workers in other industries grew to appreciate, too.
Through their hard, work, they created a well-fitted pant that was easy to move in. From there, they developed a devoted following who use their line of clothing to stay both safe and comfortable at work. This is true of all of their clothing—they’re durable, comfortable, and machine-washable. We’re proud to carry some of their extensive lines right here at ShopMTN.com
