The best quality hi-vis reflective work vests from Construction Gear

Safety first is our motto here at Construction Gear, which is why we offer the most dependable workwear brands to protect persevering men and women on their rugged job sites. Our high-visibility reflective safety work clothing is among Construction Gear's wide range of garments to make the wearer recognizable in low-lighted working conditions. These hi-vis safety vests are made of neon-bright material and some with reflective accents to add visibility while managing traffic, being first responders to an emergency case, or operating during night shifts in an unstable workplace.

Construction Gear provides a wide selection of hi-vis safety workwear, complying with different ANSI class standards that match their corresponding job requirements. Non-ANSI-rated high-visibility work vests are also available at Construction Gear for non-life-threatening work assignments on industrial sites. Be seen and be safe with our reliable work vests.

What is an OSHA-approved safety vest?

The government mandates the wearing of high-visibility safety vests in tough working environments through the compliance of this workwear with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA regulations. However, OSHA  does not particularly indicate the materials, colors, or reflective details used on the vests.

Meanwhile, the American National Standards Institute or ANSI certifies that all the standards are met in the production of personal protective equipment, such as these safety apparel, by using rated hi-vis colors, fabric, and measurements of reflective stripes on the work clothing. ANSI provides different types of standards to match specific job descriptions and environments. Therefore, a manufacturer must comply with the ANSI quality as its standards are references to secure OSHA approval for high-visibility safety vests.

Guarantee your protection near traffic areas and other sites with low-lighting conditions while wearing OSHA-certified high-visibility reflective safety vests.

What's the difference between ANSI Class or Type 1, 2, and 3 safety vests?

ANSI Classifications for high-visibility reflective safety vests cater to certain targeted environments through certain bright colors and the dimensions of their reflective tapes on the apparel. Regardless of safety vests with zipper front or pocket designs, ANSI-rated hi-vis workwear is best recommended for traffic enforcers, emergency first responders, road maintenance workers, and construction crews operating in the wee hours of the night or sites with scarce lighting. Read on and find out which ANSI Standard is perfect to keep you safe considering the area you're stationed in.

ANSI Type 1 safety vest, like Construction Gear's Pyramex RCZ2411 Enhanced Visibility Safety Vest, is usually designed with a sleeveless cut and has at least 155 sq. in. of reflective tapes and 217 sq. in. high-visibility yellow or orange trims, enough to notice workers situated in very low traffic sites with under 25mph vehicular speed. Parking attendants, warehousemen, and road site personnel use this vest since the threat of impact is typically low.

The Type 2 ANSI rating showcases increased visibility than the Type 1 vest. Our General Electric GV076 Type R Class 2 and GV084 Type R Class 2 High-Vis Expandable 5-Point Breakaway Safety Vests are excellent for worksites with an ongoing traffic flow of 25 to 50 miles per hour. This classification is constructed with 775 sq. in. of hi-vis background fabric and 201 sq. in. of reflective strips that are at least 1 inch wide. Type 2 high-visibility safety work vests are very noticeable during the day and even more so at night. It is perfect for people working as toll operators, surveyors, school crossing guards, airport tarmac employees, road construction workers, and staff doing railway or public transportation maintenance work.

ANSI Type 3 hi-vis safety vests, such as Construction Gear's Pyramex Safety RVZ31 Series Type R Class 3 Short Sleeve Safety Vest, are intended for workers set to manage high-speed traffic with speeds exceeding 50mph. These hazardous job environments require the utmost visibility for drivers to see roadside workers or enforcers ahead immediately to avoid accidents that may lead to serious injuries or death. Most Class 3 vests are designed with short sleeves and have at least 1,240 sq. in. of safety yellow or orange fabric with a minimum of 310 sq. in. reflective trimmings. This ANSI-rated workwear is ideal for utility workers, tow truck operators, incident site investigators, emergency first responders, roadside assisting staff, and highway construction workers.

Construction Gear also has non-ANSI-rated safety vests for jobs not exposed to too many hazards but still grants workers the visibility to get them noticed in low lit areas. Rugged Blue Non-ANSI High-Vis Mesh Safety Vest features the safety yellow and orange fabric options to guarantee safety while accomplishing tasks in areas with inadequate illumination.

Flame-resistant (FR) hi-visibility safety vests
