How High Visibility Waterproof Clothing Works
High visibility waterproof clothing serves two purposes to those who wear it. Firstly, it improves their visibility wherever they are, which makes them much safer than anyone who might be wearing an ordinary set of clothes. Just wearing high vis shirts when outside a factory, for example, will make it much easier for a forklift driver to see you, as opposed to if you were wearing your ordinary working attire. Ordinary clothes are hard to spot in dark light or poor weather conditions. Hi vis clothing is now widely available from all kinds of retailers both on and offline. This makes it possible to kit out a whole factory or building site in high visibility clothing to make people less at risk of being involved in an accident involving vehicles or machinery. The second benefit is the waterproof element, something that a lot of people who work outdoors really appreciate. Those working in the building trade, or those who have to spend any amount of time outside during their working day, are at risk of getting wet from the harsh weather that we frequently experience in the UK. Having high visibility waterproof clothing helps to keep them both visible and dry, as well as warm, something which you don’t get when you are wearing your normal coat or clothing. Those working in maintenance and construction roles frequently experience these benefits.
