Who Should Be Wearing Hi-Vis Jackets?

by Reports Yell on March 15, 2022

Keeping workers safe is an important part of running any business. Hi-vis jackets can help make sure you are visible at all times, even during low light conditions. Equipping your workers with the right workwear such as a safety vest is vital, but who should be wearing hi-vis jackets?

In this blog, we’ll explain who should be wearing hi-visibility vests and how they can help keep you safe.

Vital workwear for nights or early mornings

Depending on the type of industry you work in, you may need a hi-vis t-shirt or vest to stay safe while working. Emergency responders, airport ground crews or event security may benefit from wearing hi-vis jackets in order to make them visible while they are on the clock. They can also be beneficial for those that commute by bike early in the morning, or late at night, and will help ensure they get to and from work safely.

Roadside workers

Working on the roadside can be very dangerous. While it is often made safer with reduced speed limits, and traffic cones, you can’t guarantee that drivers will respect these precautions. Hi-vis t-shirts and hi-visibility vests help drivers see each worker on the road and will know to slow down.

Safety vests for on-site workers

Construction workers, builders and engineering and utility workers will often have to deal with heavy machinery. In order to maintain the safety of everyone on-site, it’s vital that each worker is wearing a hi-visibility vest. This helps ensure that they are always seen by other workers and aren’t put at risk by the heavy machinery and equipment on-site.
