The Importance of High Visibility Striping

High Visibility StripingThe safety and health of your employees on the job is your responsibility. If they’re doing a high risk job, they need to have every form of protection they can get. The onus of providing good quality safety apparel falls on the employer and the owner of the business.  It is the one duty that you shouldn’t neglect or disregard.

At World Emblem, we feel that good quality safety apparel is the right of every employee. It ensures that proper safety standards are observed and your employees are protected from accidents as much as possible. Here’s why high visibility striping is important.

Why it’s needed?

If your employees regularly work in low light and low visibility areas, high visibility striping would make them visible. These work by reflecting light or glowing in the dark, so to speak. A person wearing them is clearly visible to the others even in the dark. This helps prevent accidents if your employees are working around moving objects like cars, trucks, etc. For example, if you own a construction company, your workers might be working on the road and drivers in vehicles might not be able to spot them on time. Safety uniforms help prevent accidents like that.

What’s the right Safety apparel?

There are several things you need to consider when you’re buying such uniforms for your employees. Consider the following guidelines:

  • Contrasts: Stripes would contrast sharply against the background material. For example, if the uniform is blue, the stripes should be bright orange or florescent green.
  • Location: If your employees have stripes on their uniform arms and legs, it would show the person driving towards them that a moving object or person is in their path.
  • Coverage: You need to ensure that the high visibility striping covering all sides of the body. For example, if your employee if facing one way, the vehicle coming from behind should be able to see the stripes. The stripes should be visible from all viewing angles.
  • Comfort: You also need to ensure that your workers can work comfortably while wearing safety apparel. If the fit isn’t right, they won’t be able to concentrate on the job before them.

When you’re buying clothing with high visibility striping, you need to keep all of these things in mind. That way, you can ensure that your employees are safe and comfortable at all times.
