The importance of high visibility clothing cannot be understated. Hi vis allows you to be seen no matter the task at hand and whatever the weather, conditions or time of day. At work, school or doing your favourite hobby wearing hi vis should be a consideration for us all in order to ensure our safety and visibility.

Importance of Being Seen

The primary reason why hi vis is important is to safely alert others of your presence. This point is illustrated by the above image perfectly. In dusk and low light conditions, light sources such as car headlights reflect from hi vis clothing allowing the wear to be seen. Not wearing hi vis in this situation seriously compromises your safety as even at 5 meters away visibility is poor.

Who Wears High-Visibility Clothing?

Hi-vis clothing is incredibly versatile and has uses in a wide array of industries and hobbies. Hi-vis was originally used by road and rail workers. However, the emergency services, security, construction, automotive and warehousing, all use hi-vis workwear daily. Also, hi vis is an important consideration for hobbies such as cycling, jogging and hiking.

In the workwear setting, hi vis has numerous advantages including being able to identify staff and providing a professional look to a business. Hi vis with a personalised embroidered or printed logo contributes to a greater overall image and allows recognition of your brand or group.

Wearing hi vis is not just limited to humans even horses wear hi vis. The hi vis that a horse would requires are obviously very different to the human equivalent! Horses are recommended to wear hi vis leg bands and exercise sheets. Wearing hi-vis gives drivers 3 extra seconds to react which can help to ensure a horse is seen when riding on a road and on bridleway.
