Guidelines for Reflective Safety Clothing

Keep your employees safe on the job with the right.


Would you send your employees to a dangerous jobsite without a helmet?

The clothing your employees wear on the job is just as important to their safety as the rest of their protective equipment. OSHA requires employers to provide appropriate personal protective clothing and equipment to workers.

One of the biggest dangers on any jobsite is visibility. Whether it’s keeping workers safe from traffic or helping them stand out to equipment drivers on-site, high visibility and reflective clothing is important for maintaining the safety of your employees on the job. High visibility jackets, T-shirts, vests, sweatshirts and more can all be incorporated into required workwear that promotes safety.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) oversees the norms and regulations that guide safety procedures in every sector. They certify certain reflective materials to be better-suited to particular applications than others.

Let’s explore the range of ANSI certified reflective clothing available:
