High Visibility Uniforms

By: Sarah Carlye

For workers who need high visibility, All Uniform Wear can meet the uniform needs of those who need to lower their risk of injury or death and increase their visibility while performing their jobs.

Worker visibility requirements are nothing new. Since November 18, 2006 the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) added part 634, Worker Visibility to Title 23, Code of Federal Regulation. The purpose of this change was to decrease the likelihood of fatalities or injuries of workers caused by motor and construction vehicles and equipment while they are working within the right-of-way on Federal aid highways. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, estimate approximately 350,000 workers are involved in highway construction activities and more than 100 are killed in highway and street construction accidents. In addition, over 20,000 workers are injured in these accidents. High visibility uniforms can reduce the risks to workers so that they don’t become another statistic.

Earlier provisions of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) had addressed the need for workers to be seen by vehicle operators. However, this was a recommendation rather than a requirement and some agencies chose not incorporate the use of high-visibility safety apparel. Even if your workers are not required to wear high visibility uniforms, it is wise to follow suggestions for safety of your workers and make sure that high visibility uniforms, like the ones provided by All Uniform Wear, are available to your workers.
