Hi Vis Hoodies

High visibility clothing such as hi vis hoodies are required in a wide range of industries as an essential safety requirement.  Many of these require high visibility clothing are certified to specific ISO standards.

Occupations which require hi vis clothing

Types of industries which use hi vis clothing are often ones where transport or machinery is involved such as on railway workers, road workers, construction workers and airport ground staff. Being seen clearly means that there is much less chance of being hit or squashed by machinery in the event that a person is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Types of clothing

The first high visibility clothing as we know it today was invented in the 60’s and was a waistcoat which was worn on the railways.  Since then there has been huge innovation in personal protective clothing which means that instead of plastic reflective strips on the garment.  We are able to produce soft fabric which are reflective in the dark. From widely recognised jackets, waterproof trousers and bibs and braces to more modern garments such as hi vis hoodies, polo shirts, joggers, sweatshirts, hats, ¼ zips and even shorts and t shirts.  You can even get non workwear like sports clothing and children’s coats for people out after dark.

Being able to wear a hi vis hoodie has been a breakthrough in the comfort of safety wear.  It’s a much more flexible piece of clothing and much less bulky for moving about.  It is also much more comfortable for warmer weather when previously you would have had to wear a coat.
