Industries That Use Personal Protective Equipment
Various industries use different types of personal protective equipment to keep their workers safe, from eye protection to full coverage with jackets and bibs or overalls.First responders need Class 3 vests, jackets and rain gear, so they are more visible to oncoming traffic. Class 3 has enough bright background and reflective tape to significantly mitigate accidents where someone might be directing high-flow traffic traveling at 50 miles per hour or more.Class 2 vests and gear are good for school crossing guards and those working near traffic, but not directly in traffic unless the speed is under 25 miles per hour. Class 1 and Class 2 gear is good for construction workers and loggers who are not working near a road. They have enough visibility so that co-workers do not miss seeing the wearer and can keep an eye out for dangerous conditions.Loggers and building construction workers can wear Class 1 or Class 2 vests and rain gear, hard hats, goggles and protective gloves. They may even wear safety supports for joints and knee pads.School crossing guards and those working in road construction, but not directly in traffic over 25 miles per hour, can wear Class 2 vests and rain gear.Read More Read Less
