Hi-Vis Vests

High visibility (Hi-Vis) work clothing is expected in a lot of dangerous occupations. Employees and employers are legally obligated to wear hi-vis safety apparel while on the job, and lives have been saved as a result. It is essential to purchase safety vests and jackets from a workwear industry specialist such as RSEA Safety to ensure everyone on your watch is as safe as possible.

What is a Hi-Vis vest?

A Hi-Vis vest is a piece of clothing that makes the wearer more visible. Hi-Vis vests are designed to prevent accidents and injuries to the wearer and other people in the vicinity. High visibility vests are either fluorescent or reflective, giving them their well-known hi-vis characteristics.

Fluorescent: These safety Hi-Vis vests are created using synthetic materials with the addition of special dye for converting wavelength energy into light.

Retroreflective: Often used for safety on roads and in traffic, and usually incorporating reflective tape, these vests reflect any light pointed straight at them.

High visibility safety clothing should be worn at appropriate times. For example, road workers and traffic controllers should use fluorescent fabrics for day use, reflective fabrics for night use, and possibly a combination of fluorescent and reflective fabrics for day/night use. Check out the entire RSEA Safety Hi-Vis vest range and purchase the appropriate hi-vis vest for you.

Where can I buy a safety vest?

Without needing to blow our own trumpet, RSEA Safety is Australia’s favourite workwear retailer for lots of good reasons. Our service network includes over 50 retail superstores, five distribution centres and five hire depots. We also have 12 embroidery facilities so you can have your company logo emblazoned on the garment.

The growth of RSEA Safety has been built on customer satisfaction, along with our team of more than 30 safety specialists Australia-wide who are ready to help you identify the right safety gear for you and your team.

What are Hi-Vis vests made from?

Some of the best waterproof and wind-resistant Hi-Vis vests are made from 100% nylon ripstop with 100% polyester insulation. The CAT Workwear Hi-Vis Hooded Work Vest is one such example, with materials designed to regulate the body temperature in all weather conditions. Apart from insulation and UV protection, this Hi-Vis Hooded Work Vest boasts lots more features including:

  • Self-lined 3 piece hood with drawcord
  • Oxford overlays at the front and back
  • Sturdy front zip with placket opening
  • Interior and exterior pockets with zip and Velcro closures
  • Hand warmer pockets and adjustable bottom hem

A word of caution: while all high visibility gear has a similar appearance, there are some dodgy imports that are non-compliant with Australian standards and unsafe to use. Only trust industry experts when it comes to safety clothing.

Are blue Hi-Vis vests legal?

Acceptable colours for Australian Hi-Vis workwear include Orange and Yellow. Strips of silver reflective tape are common on many garments. Some colours such as primary red are not used as they are not easily discernible for people who are colour blind, while wearing blue can lead to mistaken identity with police and other emergency services. Speak to your industry expert or workwear specialist regarding the appropriate Hi-Vis vests for your team.

How to clean a hi-vis vest?

A quality Hi-Vis orange safety vest or other Hi-Vis workwear will last for many years with the right care. Here are a few tips.

  • Wash with similar colours
  • Gentle machine wash on a cold or (slightly) warm cycle
  • Do not soak or bleach
  • Dry on the line or tumble dry on a cool or (slightly) warm cycle

Can I wear hi-vis vest to labouring work?

There are a lot of labouring jobs where a person is expected to wear hi-vis clothing. The construction and labour industries come with inherent dangers that need to be mitigated with the best possible health and safety standards, including safety hi-vis vests and other hi-vis workwear. Start your new labouring job with a high quality hi-vis vest from RSEA, and set the standard at your workplace.

What colour are hi-vis vests?

Although generally noticed in tones of orange and yellow in Australia, there are other colours for a hi-vis work vest. Pink hi vis vests, for example, are popular with ladies in some occupations, while it may be acceptable for workers in some jobs to wear reflective tape over a regular black or blue pullover or jacket.

For more information regarding small hi-vis vests, large hi-vis vests, ladies hi-vis vests, flame resistant apparel and all other workwear, browse the RSEA collection online or in-store, and stay safe.
