Your employees depend on you to provide equipment that keeps them safe on the job – and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires it. OSHA considers high-visibility safety vests part of what constitutes personal protective equipment because they save lives. At EnviroSafetyProducts, we support workers’ safety, from construction to law enforcement, from utility workers to traffic directors. You’ll find a huge selection of public service safety vests, Class 2 safety vests, Class 3 safety vests and flame-retardant safety vests in our inventory, so take a few moments and find what you need to protect your employees today.
Safety Vests: What Employers Need to Know
According to OSHA, "The employer is responsible for requiring the wearing of appropriate personal protective equipment in all operations where there is an exposure to hazardous conditions or where this part indicates the need for using such equipment to reduce the hazards to the employees." That includes keeping employees safe from traffic hazards by increasing their visibility. OSHA goes a step further, stating in 29 CFR 1926.95(d)(1) that employers must furnish this PPE to employees at no cost to them.
Whether your employees are working on a heavily trafficked expressway or on a construction site with heavy equipment moving back and forth, it’s your responsibility as an employer to make sure everyone knows they’re there.
Non-ANSI Safety Vests
Ideal for applications that don’t require ANSI-approved safety equipment, these brightly colored and reflective vests are an economical solution to visibility issues in the workplace. Our inventory is packed with mesh and solid safety vests (some with reflective tape, some without) in a variety of styles, colors and sizes. We also carry disposable safety vests with tie-front closures, permanent safety vests with Velcro closures and zippers, and much more for workplaces that aren’t required to meet ANSI standards.
Our safety vests can work in conjunction with other PPE, as well, like flame-resistant clothing, rainwear and insulated clothing.
Class 2 Safety Vests
Class 2 safety vests are ideal for both daytime and nighttime use. Generally used by law enforcement personnel, construction workers, emergency response teams and airport ground staff, Class 2 safety vests are available in high-visibility orange, yellow and green. EnviroSafetyProducts’ huge selection includes breakaway flame-resistant vests, mesh vests and solid, full vests.
Class 3 Safety Vests
Known for providing the highest level of visibility for utility workers, flagging crews, survey crews, emergency responders and road construction workers, Class 3 safety vests are affordable and reliable. Each Class 3 safety vest in our collection includes top-of-the-line safety features like reflective or gloss tape and meets ANSI/ISEA Class 3 safety vest requirements.
Public Service Safety Vests
Most of the public service safety vests in our online catalog meet ANSI/ISEA standards. Each is specially designed to meet the challenges of specific professions, like emergency medical services, firefighting and police work – and they’re accurately labeled to help bystanders and other professionals distinguish between emergency personnel. The high-visibility public service safety vests we offer are economical, durable and reliable.
