Safety Vests

It is required to wear an approved high visibility safety vest on job sites. Always make sure that the specifications have been checked and adhered to. There are two main types of safety vests:

ANSI Class 2 Safety Vests

Class 2 vests are the most common vests worn by construction workers. This can include workers who are on a roadway where traffic is moving under 50 mph. A Class 2 vest must have at least 775 square inches of safety yellow or safety orange background material and 201 square inches of reflective striping.

ANSI Class 3 Safety Vests

Class 3 vests are for people working in the most dangerous environments where visibility is the highest priority. This includes roadways where traffic is traveling in excess of 50mph. A class 3 vest requires a 1,240 square inches of safety yellow or safety orange background and 310 square inches of reflective striping.
