Safety Uniforms: High-Visibility (High Vis) and Flame Resistant (FR)
Some workplaces consider safety the main concern for team members, and having top-notch safety uniforms and equipment is crucial. Many worksites are poorly lit, exist within heavy traffic patterns, include dangerous maintenance tasks, and more. All of these involve visibility being integral to safety. According to OSHA in the OSHA Act of 1970, "Each employer shall furnish to each of his employee's employment and a place of employment which is free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees." To say that having proper safety workwear is important is an understatement. We have the right uniforms to keep you compliant and your staff protected.
Types of Reflective Safety Apparel
Enhanced Visibility Uniforms
Employees still need to be seen while performing their duties in lower-risk areas. For those not required to wear high-visibility items, we recommend enhanced vis garments. Shirts and jackets usually have reflective tape around the chest and sleeve, while pants have tape around the lower part of the leg. These uniforms are not held to ANSI standards and can be made without brightly colored fabrics.
High Visibility Uniforms (High Vis)
High vis uniforms are ANSI rated, held to ANSI standards, and have bright, fluorescent fabrics. Think construction worker, firefighter, crossing guard, surveyor, etc. These uniforms also have reflective stripes to ensure your employees can be seen from any angle.
Flame Resistant (FR) Uniforms:
Flame-resistant uniforms will help protect your workers from burn-related and arc flash injuries. We work with leading makers of FR clothing to offer only the best to our customers. The result is clothing that is comfortable and safe when at work.
It’s an OSHA recommendation that anyone who works with electrical components wears FR Clothing. Sure, you may think of utility line workers, but it includes employees who may work on wiring, lighting, machine repair, maintenance, HVAC technicians, and more. Let us help you provide employees with the correct workwear to keep them safe in any situation on the job.
