Hi Vis for workwear
Hi Vis is an essential requirement to wear for some jobs, but mainly construction and building work. It must be worn in a construction area that has moving vehicles and anyone on the site must be wearing Hi Vis. You can wear any types of Hi Vis clothing, with the most common choice being the Hi Vis jacket.
Hi Vis clothing at work
If your employer has a Hi Vis policy, you must follow it. Don’t have your own Hi Vis? Don’t worry, as your employer must supply it to you if it is a requirement to wear it. If you unnecessarily damage/break the clothing, you may be asked to replace it at your own expense, so take good care of it.
Workers that work in public such as road workers, must wear at least a Hi Vis jacket and Hi Vis trousers as they are working in the eye of the unaware public. People may not be aware that there are construction works happening, and not be keeping an eye out for the workers.
Hi Vis is a serious requirement for these types of jobs.
