Most people do not give much thought to high-visibility clothing until it’s too late. Reid Supply Company, a Michigan-based distributor of safety work wear and industrial products, wants to change that thinking with some simple tips. “We want to lead the way in emphasizing the importance of high-visibility work wear and safety equipment to road and bridge workers, or any pedestrian who must navigate streets where vehicles are present,” says John Carrier, President of Reid Supply Company.
The company emphasizes that if you’re a part of a road crew, other than appropriate motorists signing, there’s nothing more important than making sure you’re visible to motorists. Fluorescent-colored personal protective clothing, such as vests, jackets, pants, rain gear, and more can make a difference in potentially life-threatening roadside working conditions. Motorists may not be aware to slow down if they can’t see roadside workers and Reid’s entire line of road traffic safety solutions will help make that happen.
“We want to help our customers easily comply with OSHA regulations, by making them aware of the wide range of high-visibility work wear options available from Reid Supply,” says Carrier. “Through our campaigns, it is our hope that anyone who works near moving traffic, knows that this high-visibility safety gear is available and easy to purchase.”
OSHA considers road and construction traffic a well-recognized hazard to highway and road construction workers. Whether you are a road construction worker, a crossing guard or a runner, high-visibility clothing will increase your visibility and could save you from injury or worse. “Our emphasis on high-visibility work wear for anyone who must work on or near roads is a campaign that we take very seriously,” says Greg Palmer, Director of Marketing for Reid Supply. “We want everyone to know that they can help to protect themselves with some very inexpensive colorful safety clothing.”
