Typically, people think of hi-vis gloves as being used in construction zones in order for workers to be easily spotted. But the thing is, there is a major difference between neon and florescent colored materials, and true certified hi-vis material. While florescent yellows and oranges are quite visible, a hi-vis product actually reflects light back to its source. This makes for even safer work environments with the highest level of visibility you could ask for.
Hi-Vis work gloves are the most effective in low light work environments, helping workers stay safe and stay accountable to wearing their gloves. This is important because most injuries happen in low light situations and you want to do all that you can to keep yourself and workers safe from hazards in the work place. In addition to the hi visibility, these gloves also include features that enhance puncture and cut resistance.
You should consider using hi-vis gloves in any work environment that is low light, has bad weather conditions, working at night, and anywhere you want to enhance safety awareness.
