Page Count: 52
scope:

This standard specifies performance requirements for high-visibility safety apparel. For the purpose of this standard, the term "highvisibility safety apparel (HVSA)" shall be used to mean apparel PPE intended to provide conspicuity to the user in hazardous situations under any light conditions by day and under illumination by vehicle headlights in the dark or other low light conditions.

Performance requirements are included for color, retroreflection, physical properties and minimum areas of background, retroreflective and combined-performance materials, as well as the recommended configuration of the materials. Test methods are provided in the standard to ensure that a minimum level of visibility is maintained when garments are subjected to ongoing care procedures. These specifications may prescribe a wide variety of occupational HVSA, but shall not be applied to firefighter turnout gear.

Purpose

Conspicuity is enhanced by high contrast between the garment and the ambient background against which it is seen. This standard provides performance requirements for conspicuous materials to be used in HVSA and specifies minimum amounts of background, retroreflective and combined-performance materials, colors and placement of materials for garments, and supplemental items used to enhance the visibility and safety of workers. Performance Class guidelines are identified with corresponding recommendations for selection based on worker risk hazards, such as complex backgrounds, vehicular traffic and speeds encountered.
