Which Level of Hi Vis Workwear Do I Require

The most important thing to make sure of is that your choice of clothing meets the EN 471 standard. Each garment should come with documentation providing proof it has been tested and passed the relevant safety standards.

If your work is situated on or close to high speed roads or other high risk environments such as working around heavy plant and machinery you should chose Class 3 clothing.  When working close to standard roads or traffic and any involvement with medium risk activities you should consider choosing Class 2 high visibility workwear.  When your work is of a nature where EN471 is not a requirement but would be beneficial then Class 1 can be an option
