We often characterize the construction industry by a high prevalence of accidents and injuries—and we can attribute this to inadequate risk management measures, like failure to use or incorrect use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
However, we can mitigate accidents and injury risks at construction sites by wearing proper safety gear for construction, including safety vests, hard hats, safety glasses, safety boots and gloves, and reflective clothing.
In this post, we focus on reflective clothing for construction, particularly vests and shirts. Let’s start with the basics.
Protective clothing is clothing worn to protect the body from harm or injury. It can be worn for various reasons, including:
Protective clothing is often used in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and healthcare, but it can also be used by people in their everyday lives, such as when doing outdoor activities or working in the garden.
This type of clothing is mainly referred to as personal protective equipment (PPE).
Road workers often wear protective clothing to protect themselves from hazards while on the job. This can include items such as;
The specific protective clothing worn by road workers can vary depending on the specific tasks and the hazards present on the job site.
Road workers often wear reflective clothing to enhanced visibility or make themselves more visible to drivers. This is particularly important at night or in other low-light conditions when it can be difficult for drivers to see road workers and other hazards on the road.
By wearing reflective with high arc rating clothing, road workers can help to ensure that drivers can see them and take appropriate action to avoid collisions. Reflective clothing can also help to improve safety on the job site by making it easier for other workers to see each other and avoid accidents.
There are many different types of protective clothing available. The specific type of protective clothing appropriate for a given situation will depend on the specific hazards present and the level of protection needed. Some common options for protective clothing include:

Safety apparel for construction is essential to a worker’s gear on a construction site. We design clothing to protect workers from hazards and prevent injuries and accidents on the job. Therefore, workers must wear the appropriate safety apparel to minimize risks.
