If you're working in a dangerous environment every day, hi vis workwear is important to make sure you stay safe.
Whether you're working the night shift on a motorway or even riding a motorbike as a courier, safety at work has to be at the forefront of your mind.
From hi vis coveralls to jackets and trousers, there are a wide range of products from quality brands like Dickies, Portwest, Helly Hansen and Tuff Stuff available to make sure you stay safe and are seen at work.
A lightweight hi vis coverall is practical and comfortable if you're working long nights on a road project. If you're in charge of a team that will be working near traffic, day or night, then investing in these top quality coveralls will make sure your staff stay safe.
The Portwest coverall comes with a side access pocket and a front zip, making it comfortable to wear, and an elasticated back waist gives you more flexibility in a manual job. The lightweight polyester is in bright yellow with reflective stripes and, like any hi vis workwear, it can be personalised with company logos and branding.
If you only need a jacket, the Dickies hi vis bomber jacket is a tough and durable design which will withstand all seasons. The waterproof design has stitched and tape welded seams to keep you warm and dry and even has a concealed hood for bad weather. The yellow fabric has reflective stripes around the body and arms and an external mobile phone pocket, included in the jacket's design, will help keep your staff connected.
For hi vis trousers in warmer weather, Portwest's lightweight trousers are ideal. Perfect for wearing over your own trousers, the waterproof design will keep you dry without weighing you down. They come with an elasticated waist too, meaning you can stay as active as you need to be.
If you're carrying more gear at work, the Portwest combat trousers have enough space for everything you need. With patch leg pockets and room for knee pads, these trousers will make sure you are seen while also giving you plenty of pocket space.
