The safety vest: essential signaling equipment
Indispensable in the event of an emergency stop such as on a construction site, the safety vest is essential signaling equipment. Allowing its wearer to be easily seen, the yellow vest is a guarantee of safety. To be compliant and effective, however, it must obey several rules.
How to choose your safety vest?
To choose your yellow vest, you must first ensure its compliance. It must indeed comply with the ISO 20471 standard. Visible on the safety vest label, this symbol certifies that it has been tested by the law in force. When buying a yellow vest, it is also important to opt for fluorescent equipment that has at least 2 reflective strips. These two characteristics are essential for visibility.
The mandatory yellow vest can also be chosen based on its practical characteristics. Choose models that offer several sizes for more comfort. This equipment can also be equipped with pockets or a lining, even for inexpensive yellow vests. And to be fully equipped, do not hesitate to buy a yellow vest and a safety triangle at the same time. Finally, keep in mind that the safety vest can also be orange, without losing its effectiveness.
