NASCO's HiVis designs and materials comply with the NEW ANSI 107-1999 standard for high visibility clothing and provide protection from many hazards. We have HiVis in ArcWear and WorkWear for workers from electrical to construction. We have the most thoroughly tested rainwear in the industry. You can count on NASCO ArcWear. THE choice of electric utilities.
- Meets ANSI 107-1999 High Visibility Worker Clothing Standard
- You can choose from normal raingear or electric arc and flame resistant
- Quality rainwear with dielectrically welded seams (no inferior stitched seams on our PVC coated fabrics).
You want motorists to see the difference between a traffic control device and your workers. You want to help your workers stand out against the visual clutter of your typical work zone. You want the proper hazard protection out of your raingear and to keep your workers dry. Now you can have all these things in one rainsuit.
The trend toward nighttime work on roadsides only heightens workers risks. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1995 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, 25% or all fatal vehicle/worker accidents occur between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., even with only 9% of the full-time workforce on duty. And the rate of all worker injuries' is eight times more severe for workers in construction work zones (CWZ).
NASCO has long been a leader in reflective trim in the rainwear industry. Our stock rainsuit had sufficient reflective material to meet the new ANSI standard and our new configuration is even more visible with additional trim in an improved configuration and the two NEW HiVis colors.
With the introduction of the NEW ANSI/ISEA 107-1999 American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel, employers have guidance for additional worker safety on highways, airports and any worker needing high visibility.
ANSI 107-1999 has three Classes of garments:
Class 3: For traffic exceeding 50 mph, like highway construction sites.
Class 2: For traffic exceeding 25 mph and inclement weather like some highway work.
Class 1: For traffic not exceeding 25 mph or workers with clear separation from traffic like parking attendants.
This voluntary standard has design guidelines, performance specifications, and usage guidelines for high-visibility vests, jackets, bib/jumpsuit coveralls, trousers, and harnesses.
