What should I be aware of in regard to high-vis vests?

Since 2014, drivers in Germany have been required to have a warning vest with them on the road. Numerous European countries have the same regulations. Accordingly, every vehicle must have a high-visibility vest in orange, red-orange or yellow.

Reflective stripes make high-vis vests for men and women into warning clothing with a high visibility factor in accordance with EN 20471. As they only cover the torso, they are part of PPE class 2 and cover medium risks. This class is applicable for, among other things:

  • Working outdoors, on rails or on roads

  • Working in poor light and/or weather conditions

  • Transit through outdoor facilities or the factory premises

  • Handling lifting and hoisting equipment

  • Construction sites

  • Hydraulic engineering works

The company risk assessment is used as a basis for selecting which work vests to use. In this context, details such as posture at work or the potential concealment of reflective clothing when handling work equipment also need to be considered.

Note: if you are looking for personal protective equipment for the highest safety (class 3), then long sleeves and trouser legs are a must – and therefore high-visibility work jackets and reflective work trousers are the right choice.

What do I need to pay attention to with bib overalls?

  1. Reusable and disposable aprons made of PVC, vinyl and other plastics provide a protective shield against splashed chemicals, rinsing water or other liquids. The media resistance of the product must be suitable for the workplace and its requirements.

  2. Heat resistant aprons must be resistant to radiant heat and comply with PPE Regulation 2016/425 and EN ISO 11612. They must always be combined with other heat protection products, such as heat resistant work gloves and heat protection jackets.
