October 2012 The Importance of High Visibility Workwear

As winter gets closer, it is important to start thinking about staff safety. Working and travelling outdoors can be hazardous when the nights get dark and visibility is poor. The best way to be seen in the dark is by wearing hi viz clothing.

Hi viz clothing is clothing that has reflective properties and is visible in the dark. Garments are usually fluorescent coloured with stripes of reflective fabric. There is now a huge range of high visibility workwear and accessories available, from hi viz vests, jackets and trousers to T-shirts, sweatshirts and hats.

All hi viz clothing available at Workwear Express conforms to EN471 European safety standards. Fabric and reflective details are categorised by classes which determine the level of visibility and start from 1 (low level) up to 3 (high level).

Hi viz clothing is a vital part of workwear for staff working in construction, transportation, rail engineers, and warehouse staff. Whether staff are working on a building site, beside a road or in a factory, good high visibility clothing that stands out from the working environment is essential to employee safety.

 In the UK, Health and Safety regulations state that anyone working in a low-visibility environment, or where there is a risk of not being easily seen, high-visibility clothing must be worn.

Why not add your logo?

Staff will usually wear hi viz garments outdoors, over their usual clothing, so it is a great idea to add your company name or logo to hi viz garments. This is a great way to promote your business and make sure your staff are seen as ambassadors of your company.

Here at Workwear Express we can customise your hi viz clothing using our state of the art embroidery, screen print and transfer facilities. You can now add your logo or design to any high visibility garment from only 95p.

The video below shows how we add embroidered logos to hi viz coats.
