Safety Focus of the Week: High-Visibility Clothing
Selection of high-visibility clothing is project specific and should be considered prior to the start of the project and re-evaluated as the nature of the work changes. Type II (daytime) or Type III (day or night) is required when working on or adjacent to a roadway. Certain projects will have specific requirements from the Owner or our Client.
ECI typically issues each employee a Type III vest, depending upon their assignment. In general, high-visibility clothing (but not necessarily reflective Type II or III) should be incorporated into our daily tailboard on all sitework projects involving moving equipment and trucks – even if not specifically required by regulation.
