Customized Safety Wear from R&P Prints Canada
High-visibility safety wear has become more and more prevalent over recent years. The apparel is worn where visibility is central to personal safety. Simply put, safety wear improves how well a person can be "seen" by others. High-visibility apparel is particularly relevant to those working in traffic situations or construction sites, especially in low-light and dark conditions. At R&P Prints, a variety of customized safety wear is available, at wholesale prices, and for numerous industries.
High-visibility safety wear has become integral for those who work with moving vehicles and/or machinery. Clearly, the bottom line for workers is personal safety on the job site. The idea behind safety wear is that bright colours and high colour contrast will dramatically heighten worker visibility. In Canada, CSA Standards for High-Visibility Safety Apparel serve to assess worker risk under certain conditions, and therefore determine which type of safety-wear should be worn.
At R&P Prints, safety apparel can be customized to suit particular industries, as well as specific business specifications. Certified reflective apparel is available in a wide variety of sizes/styles, and custom design options are practically unlimited. For clients with special requests or certain questions, the team at R&P Prints is knowledgeable and experienced. Available during regular business hours, and often after-hours, they can help with bulk orders, sizes, and custom ideas.
Fluorescent and Retro-Reflective Safety Wear
Fluorescent materials “convert” ultra-violet light from the sun into more visible light. Needless to say, this material requires a source of natural sunlight. Fluorescent material will appear brighter than regular material when there is low natural light (like at dusk and dawn). Fluorescent colours will provide the most contrast against other backgrounds.
Retro-Reflective materials return light back in the direction of a light source. This material allows light to be reflected back to a vehicle’s light beam, for example. Retro-Reflective material is much more effective under low-light conditions. However, the less-than-adequate contrast makes these materials less effective in sunny, daylight conditions.
Different classes of High-Visibility Safety Apparel
CSA Standards are designed to set performance levels for safety wear. Depending on the industry and usage, there are standards for colours, luminosity, and even body coverage. CSA categorizes three classes of safety wear, based on the amount of body coverage that’s provided.
- Class 1 - provides the lowest acceptable coverage while offering good visibility
- Class 2 - provides a moderate level of body coverage along with greater visibility
- Class 3 - provides the best body coverage/visibility under poor light conditions
