360 Degree Reflective Vest
When it comes to safety, it is important to take all the necessary precautions in order to ensure you are always out of harm’s way. You never know what might happen, and by taking a few extra steps to ensure you are safe, it can make all the difference between staying alive and healthy and receiving a nasty injury. You never know what you are going to be doing or where you are working, so it is important to educate yourself on a few of the more important safety materials you can use, no matter the job title.

For starters, a reflective vest is important to wear. During low light situations, it is difficult for other individuals to see you, especially passing traffic. The reflective vest makes it possible for light from any source, whether it is a headlight or the moon, to bounce off the surface and make it stand out more. This helps make the entire situation far safer. Of course, this only works if there is some sort of light present. If there is no light at all, it isn't going to work and people still can't see you. If you need to stand out far away, you need to go a different route. Even if there is light in the area, the reflective vest is not going to show up several hundred feet away. It is always important for traffic to see you from as far of a distance as possible, as this increases their reaction time. So, in combination of a vest, you need to consider the LED lights.

The LED lights can be attached to anywhere on the clothing. This includes the vest, but also a shirt, pants or anything else that has a small amount of cloth, able to accept the clip from the light. The lights are either always on or pulsating. The pulsing effect brings attention to those who are looking on, which ensures it is possible to see you from a very large distance away. So, no matter how much light is in the area, it is possible to see you. This also helps with other employees who are in the area, as they can now see you better, instead of having to call out to you or search in all directions just to be able to find you. On top of it, without thee LED lights, workers with you probably won't be able to see anything, unless you are within close range at night and they have some sort of lighting equipment on hand.

It is always important to make safety your top priority, no matter what kind of job you are performing or where you are working. When working outside where there is traffic, you need to make yourself be known to those traveling around you, and if it is dark outside, you can't always do this just by what you are wearing. This is why taking additional equipment on with you is important to make you known.
