There are lots of items of personal protective gear for workers to use these days, including tactical footwear and gloves, helmets, knee pads and much more. Also, high visibility work wear plays a crucial safety role in a number of industries.
By donning clothes like this, individuals can help ensure that people are aware of their presence.
One woman who appreciates the significance of these products is chair of the Health and Safety Executive Judith Hackitt. Recently, she noted that there is “no doubt that in some jobs high visibility coats or tabards are absolutely necessary and can genuinely be life saving.”
Highlighting this, she added: “On a busy factory floor, for example, where there are people and vehicles in close proximity; at the roadside, when the workplace can be inches from traffic; on railways where you need to see a crew from a mile away to slow a train.”
Meanwhile, she also pointed out that there has been a rise in the popularity of garments like this and they are now regarded by many as “cool” fashion items. While she warned against overuse of the items, noting that this could mean they lose their impact, she also suggested this trend has its “upsides”.
About this, Ms Judith Hackitt remarked: “It will help to remove some of the cynicism and reluctance among those who really need to wear them in high risk workplaces.”
Concluding, the expert added: “People don’t have to love ‘hi vis’. But we all need to be able to distinguish when it is necessary and when it is not.”
