Traffic safety gear is important while working on road projects. In high traffic areas, workers need to be seen by everyone around them. This includes high visibility clothing, hard hats, protective eye wear, footwear and any other type of safety gear that may help the worker be seen in traffic. In most traffic safety work environments, the weather is always a factor as well, so workers must have effective visible traffic safety gear that is also protective from the elements, whether it be rain, snow and sleet, mud, fog or intense sunshine and heat. Traffic safety workers may be working next to fast moving vehicles the majority of their day, so it very important for them to be able to move freely in their gear in case of the need for a quick reaction. Don't forget to purchase our safety cones, safety guards, and tapes as well.
Traffic Safety involves workers in road construction, railroad maintenance, airport baggage handlers and ground crews, emergency response and law enforcement personnel, school crossing guards, utility crews, survey crews, trash collectors, loading operation crews and more. When working in traffic related work environments, noise and ear protection can interfere with a workers ability to spot dangers in time to avoid injury. The traffic safety gear that a worker wears is designed to attract attention and help divert any accidents by making sure that a worker is seen. Hazards involved in traffic related work environments may also require hard hats in an atmosphere where stones may be thrown up by machinery or passing vehicles, or rocks falling from a nearby hillside.
