Frequently Asked Questions About Hi Vis Workwear

1. What does hi-vis mean?

The term 'hi vis' stands for 'high visibility. The Australian government mandates compliance with industry regulations for hi-vis attire. The standard AS/NZS 4602.1 must be met by all hi visibility garments used for high-risk applications, which includes exposure to hazards such as moving vehicles, equipment, and other high-risk situations. The standard AS/NZS 1906.4 involves hi vis and retro-reflective materials and devices used for road traffic control. It specifies the physical properties for the various high visibility materials, along with the photometric and colorimetric qualities

Wearing hi-vis clothing plays a crucial role as it ensures that the people are visible from a distance, which helps avoid accidents otherwise caused by visibility issues.

2. Who wears hi-vis clothing?

Generally, people working at congested traffic zones, mines, and construction sites are mandated to wear hi-vis workwear. Wearing hi-vis helps workers stand out against the smoky, crowded, and noisy background. Additionally, it alerts drivers and heavy machine operators of workers' presence, and accidents can be avoided.

3. Why do tradies wear hi-vis workwear?

Tradies who work on busy worksites like regular traffic or hazardous materials on construction sites wear hi-vis workwear. This workwear ensures employee safety and helps in making the labourers stand out against their background.

4. Is hi-vis yellow or green?

According to Australian Standard AS/NZS 1906.4.2010, yellow (or lime) and orange are the two colours that meet this standard for daytime hi-vis. Hi-vis with reflective tape is also an important part of this type of clothing.

5. What colour hi-vis should I wear?

It depends on the nature of your work and your working hours. If you work on a construction site during the daytime, you should prefer wearing a fluorescent fabric, typically yellow or orange, that covers at least 0.4 m2 of your torso. Consider wearing hi-vis clothing with reflective tape if you are working at night.

6. Can you wear an hi-vis on the building site?

Yes, you can wear hi-vis clothing on a construction site as far as it covers at least 0.4 m2 of your torso. The company logo should not cover more than 10 x 10 cm of surface area. If you are working onsite at night, make sure your attire complies with the reflective tape mandate.

7. What is the best workwear?

Workwear for workers on construction sites will vary with those working in hazardous situations like close to power lines. A work uniform that suits your job, complies with Australian standards and provides safety could be a good investment.

8. Is hi-vis workwear mandatory?

Hi-vis is mandatory for tradies working on construction sites, mines, warehouses, and high traffic zones. They are mandated to wear a high vis that covers the torso at the minimum and full apparel at the highest end. The hi-vis clothing should also comply with the colour standards mandated by the Australian government.

9. Do you have to wear a hi-vis in a warehouse?

Most warehouses are surrounded by tall shelves of products, forklifts, and heavy machinery. Hence, the Australian government has mandated warehouse owners and operators to provide hi-vis clothing for their employees.

10. What is the difference between yellow and orange hi-vis?

Wearing a hi-vis garment ensures that you stand out against the background. Both yellow and orange hi-vis are permissible. However, yellow hi-vis appears to be brighter, and orange generally denotes a hazard. Your onsite Health & Safety Officer must decide the appropriate hi-vis clothing for the job you do.

11. Why do construction workers wear orange?

Construction workers generally wear fluorescent orange as it helps to stand out against smoky, translucent, and dim backgrounds on construction sites. The orange hi-vis signifies a sense of warning or hazard, reflecting the degree of danger they might face.

12. Is red considered a hi-vis?

When it comes to Australian high visibility standards, Orange-red, Yellow, Red, Orange, and Yellow are approved hi-vis colours. Workers working at night or in a dim-lit space must wear hi-vis with reflective tapes to ensure maximum visibility.

13. Why should you wear hi-vis clothing in an emergency?

High visibility clothing ensures any person in an emergency is distinctively visible to rescuing teams and fellow onsite personnel. Quite often, emergencies can have smoke or low lighting in a high-intensity situation. Hi-vis clothing ensures that the person in need of help is visible.

14. What are the classes of hi-vis garments?

There are six classes of hi-vis garments.

  • Class D (daytime use, fluorescent colours, not meant for night)
  • Class N (provide high visibility in the dark, retroreflective tapes)
  • Class D/N (Class D and N compliant)
  • Class F (fluorescent fabrics for day use only)
  • Class R (retroreflective material for night use only)
  • Class RF (Class F and R compliant)

15. Which hi-vis workwear should I buy?

The type of job you do on construction sites, mining locations, high traffic zones, and warehouses varies. You should buy hi-vis clothing that fits your onsite safety requirements and meets the compliance standards applicable to your job.
