Updated High-Visibility Apparel Standard
Posted by Alison Trost on January 25, 2010 at 4:52 PM.

An updated national consensus standard for high-visibility
safety apparel from the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) now
provides criteria and test requirements for garments marked as flame- or water-resistant,
and includes service-life guidelines. Though the revision does not change the
long-standing requirements for compliant garments with respect to
classification and color, it does address important issues for the wearer
related to flame-resistance and use during rainfall.


The 43-page American
National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear
can be
purchased from ISEA for $62 a copy. For more information visit
