    High visibility clothing for professional use

    Interventions on the road occur much more frequently than fire interventions. To accomplish those tasks in safety, you need high visibility clothing. This type of garment will warn car drivers that you are on the road. Especially in assembly environments high visibility clothing can save lives. For example, when the weather is bad combined with road markings, lights of other vehicles, wet road surfaces, etc.

    The brigades’ risk assessment demands that their intervention gear complies with the EN ISO 20471:2013 standard. There are two options to comply with this standard. First, making an EN 469 suit that is also in accordance with EN ISO 20471:2013. Second, you can wear an EN ISO 20471:2013 class 2 jacket.
