ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 High Visibility Apparel

107-1999 was the first US standard to incorporate performance requirements for day and night time conspicuity garments.

Scope: This standard specifies performance requirements for high visibility safety apparel and headwear PPE. For the purpose of this standard, apparel and headwear personal protective equipment (PPE) are referred to throughout as “items”.

ansi isea 107 2004

ANSI/ISEA 107-2004

Establishes requirements:

Color and minimum areas for retroreflective and background materials.

Minimum washing cycles

Cites test methods for materials

States that retroreflective materials should be placed to ensure overall visibility of the wearer

Garment Performance Class 1, 2 and 3

Emphasizes that garment selection shall be based on an assessment of the work environment

Recommended designs section enhanced

assessing risk variables to consider
Assessing Risk: Variables to Consider
  • Speed of Traffic through the Workzone
  • Amount of Traffic through the Workzone
  • Time of Day
    • Is the work taking place during the day or night?
  • “Background Clutter” in the Workzone
  • Amount of Activity in the Workzone
    • Other construction vehicles, etc.
  • Type of Activity the Worker is Performing
    • Where is the worker’s attention?
    • Towards on-coming traffic or the task at hand?
  • Location of Work
    • Proximity to traffic and other construction vehicles
garment selection should focus on risk exposure assessment
Garment Selection should focus on Risk Exposure Assessment

overview of garment classes
Overview of Garment Classes
  • Performance Class 3: PC3
    • For use in most severe environments
    • Offers the greatest amount of fluorescent and reflective coverage
  • Performance Class 2: PC2
    • For moderately severe environments
    • Balance of fluorescent and reflective materials
  • Performance Class 1: PC1
    • For low-risk environments
    • Lowest levels of fluorescent and reflective materials
pc 3 garments

PC 3 Garments

Class 3 ensemble:

Class 2 vest, Class E bottom

Class 3 one piece:

jacket

coat

torso covering garment with full or

partial sleeve

class 3 examples

Class 3 Examples

Roadway construction personnel and flaggers, utility workers, survey crews, and emergency response personnel, vehicle assistance

Anyone who has a high task load and is in close proximity to moving equipment or traffic at high speeds

Highest speed

Work Occurs at Night

Worker’s Attention is Diverted from On-Coming Traffic and Surrounding Environment

“Cluttered” Work Zone with High Levels of Activity

Worker must be Visible from All Angles and Identifiable as a Person

Worker has no separation between them and traffic

use of class 2 garments
Use of Class 2 Garments
  • Greater Visibility Needed due to Inclement Weather Conditions
  • Complex and Cluttered Backgrounds
  • Most Work is Performed during Daytime Hours
  • Worker’s Attention is Diverted from On-Coming Traffic and Surrounding Environment
examples

Examples

Class 2:

forestry operations

ship cargo loading operations

roadway construction workers

utility workers

survey crews

railway workers

school crossing guards in traffic

examples1

Examples

Class 2: continued

delivery vehicle drivers

high-volume parking and/or toll gate personnel

airport baggage handlers/ground crew

emergency response personnel,

law enforcement personnel

trash collection and recycling

operations accident site investigators

use of class 1 garments
Use of Class 1 Garments
  • Worker’s Attention is Fully on On-Coming Traffic and Surrounding Environment
  • Separation between the Worker and Traffic
  • Not much competition for worker attention
  • Controlled environment where driver expects to move very slowly
examples2

Examples

Class 1:

parking lot attendants,

people retrieving shopping carts from parking areas,

workers exposed to the hazards of warehouse equipment traffic and roadside “right-of-way” or sidewalk maintenance workers

some delivery vehicle drivers.

development of the 207 standard
Development of the 207 standard
  • With the understanding that competing hazards exists for public safety employees that also need high visibility garments
  • In cooperation with the National Traffic Incident Management Coalition (NTIMC), whose members represent the public safety industry

Compliance

Materials

Certify (background and retroreflective material): To obtain compliance certification documents based on testing from an independent, third-party accredited laboratory to verify performance requirements as specified in this standard.
