Setting the Highest Standard

To ensure maximum quality control in its members' products, ISEA developed the American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel.

The standard - ANSI/ISEA 107-1999 -- establishes a set of performance criteria for high-visibility apparel.  The standard defines three garment categories (also known as conspicuity classes), which are based on worker hazards and tasks, complexity of the work environment or background, and vehicular traffic and speed.

Class 1 garments are intended for use in activities that permit the wearer's full and undivided attention to approaching traffic.  There should be ample separation of the worker from traffic, which should be traveling no faster than 25 miles per hour.

Examples of workers who use Class 1apparel:

   * Parking lot attendants;
   * People retrieving shopping carts from parking lots;
   * Workers exposed to warehouse equipment traffic; and
   * Roadside "right of way" or sidewalk maintenance workers.

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 passing vehicles traveling at 25 miles per hour or higher.

Examples of workers who use Class 2 apparel include:

   * Forestry operations;
   * Ship cargo loading operations;
   * Roadway construction, utility and railway workers;
   * Survey crews;
   * School crossing guards;
   * Delivery vehicle drivers;
   * High-volume parking and/or toll gate personnel;
   * Airport baggage handlers/ground crew;
   * Emergency response and law enforcement personnel;
   * Trash collection and recycling operations;
   * Accident site investigators;
   * Railroad inspection and maintenance crews.

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

Examples of workers who use Class 3 apparel include:

   * Roadway construction personnel and flaggers;
   * Utility workers;
   * Survey crews; and
   * Emergency response personnel
