High Visibility

The American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear (ANSI/ISEA 107-2010) is a standard established by the American National Standards Institute for protection of construction, maintenance, utility, emergency responders, airport ramp personnel and other workers who are routinely exposed to the hazards of low visibility while on the job. Private industry, various federal, state, and local authorities have embraced ANSI/ISEA 107 compliant garments and headwear as useful PPE for workers exposed to struck-by-hazards.

This standard provides guidelines for the selection and use of high-visibility safety apparel such as shirts, rainwear, outerwear, safety vests and headwear to improve worker visibility during the day, in low-light conditions and at night.

The ANSI/ISEA 107-1999 standard was the first U.S. standard for the design and performance of materials for high-visibility safety apparel.

High Visibility Garment Types are designated by the work environment in which the wearer is performing a task.

Hi-Vis | Class 2 Level 2

Class 2 garments are intended for use in activities where greater visibility is necessary during inclement weather conditions or in work environments with risks that exceed those for Class 1. Garments in this class also cover workers who perform tasks that divert their attention from approaching traffic, or that put them in close proximity to vehicles traveling at 25 mph or higher.

Hi-Vis | Class 3 Level 2

Class 3 garments provide the highest level of visibility and are intended for workers who face serious hazards, such as nighttime work, and often high task loads that require attention away from approaching vehicle traffic. garments for these workers should provide enhanced visibility to more of the body, such as arms and legs.

Hi-Vis | Class E Level 2

Class E garments are designated as waistband trousers, bib overalls and shorts that meet all minimum requirements for retro-reflective and background materials, except for minimum area and placement required for Performance Class 3, 2 or 1. Class E apparel is not intended to be worn without Performance Class 2 or 3 apparel. When Class E trousers are worn with Performance Class 2 or Class 3 apparel, the overall classification for the ensemble shall be Performance Class 3.
