REFLECTIVE VESTS ADDITIONAL FACTORS TO BE NOTED:
As a manufacturer and supplier of workwear, we have to keep in mind all the features of a particular product.When placing an order one should aware of all things about safety or reflective vests. These are defined below:
WATER PROFF/WATER RESISTANT:
In some conditions workers have to work in wet conditions for this, they should opt for Hi vis/reflective vests that are both water resistant and breathable. But you should take care of the laws and SOPs of your particular country.
Arc rating must be kept in mind when working in electric shock conditions. But only arc rating won’t work you’ll have to get a whole set of PPE equipments when electrical hazards are threats.
The background material of reflective Safety Vests is tear resistant but this is not needed all time.
Pockets are a very useful part of Hi vis or reflective safety vests, especially for surveyors. They are used to put some important instruments i.e measuring tapes in pockets.
Identifiers are transparent pockets in Hi Vis Vests to show an ID card or company card for identification purposes. Identifiers are added at the request of customers sometimes. Graphics for contrasting materials must be under (22 Sq In) Area, and graphics for non-contrasting materials must be under 72 Sq. In.
HOOK AND LOOP BREAK-AWAY FEATURES:
They are placed between the side and shoulders of Safety Vests, because if the vest gets caught by the part of the machine, then these break-aways allow the vest to break and prevent the worker to get escape from the pull of the moving/rotating part of a strong machine.
Sometimes a mic holder is added to the upper portion of the vest to hold a mic. This feature is for surveyors mostly, so that they can clip walky-talky in them.
