When selecting workwear for occupational use, the following Australian standards should be reviewed and adhered to as they provide detailed information on the correct workwear for use in high risk workplaces and applications

AS/NZS 4602.1

High Visibility Safety Garments - Part 1: Garments for High Risk Applications

The purpose of Standard AS/NZS 4602.1 is to provide minimum requirements for high visibility safety garments for occupational wear by persons in the relevant high risk situations, in which the person/s need to be seen at a distance against a complex visual background, in conditions of poor visibility or where they may appear suddenly in the path of a vehicle or item of moving plant. This standard includes clothing appropriate for daytime wear, night-time wear where they will be seen by retro-reflected light or for wear under both conditions but excludes garments for use by fire services.

Retro Reflective Materials and Devices for Road Traffic Control Purposes - Part 4: High-Visibility Materials for Safety Garments

The purpose of standard AS/NZS 1906.4 is to set minimum requirements for the manufacture of material utilised in high visibility safety garments, including the material of garments that are intended for use at outdoor day time and retro reflective materials for use at night/dark conditions or in garments that will be worn in conditions where the wearer needs to be highly visible.

AS/NZS 4399

Sun Protective Clothing - Evaluation & Classification

The purpose of this standard is to define the requirements of the rated ultraviolet protection factor of sun protective textiles, clothing and other items of personal apparel which is worn close to the skin, specifying appropriate labelling requirements.

In Australia people with unprotected fair skin can receive enough UVR (ultra violet radiation) to cause sunburn in about fifteen minutes. If skin is covered by a garment, the UVR exposure is significantly reduced.

For example, wearing a long sleeve shirt with a UPF rating of 40 will reduce solar UVR exposure to the skin beneath the garment by a factor of 40. This means a UPF 40 fabric will only allow one fortieth of the UVR to pass through it.

AS/NZS 4399 advises how fabrics are tested and assigned a UPF rating number and protection category; it is dependent upon how much UV radiation they block out. Rating system:

This UPF rating is for the fabric and does not address the amount of protection which is afforded by the design of the article. The manipulations involved in garment manufacture such as stretching and sewing may lower the UPF of the material.

Articles which have been designed to cover the maximum area of the body are recommended. The protection offered by this item may be lessened: 1. At points where the fabric is in close contact with the skin such as across the shoulders; 2. If the fabric is stretched; 3. If the fabric is wet; and 4. With time, due to the effects of normal wear.

AS/NZS 1020:1995
