AS/NZS 1906.4:2010 Retro reflective materials and devices for road traffic control purposes - High-visibility materials for safety garments.

 

This Standard specifies the photometric, colorimetric and physical property requirements for:

  • High-visibility materials intended for outdoor daytime use

  • Retroreflective materials for night use and

  • The manufacture of clothing into industrial safety garments

This standard classifies materials into Class F -Fluorescent and Class N - Non Fluorescent. There is an additional classification of W for wet compliance - Class F(W), and Class NF(W ) are relevant to rainwear garments.

Fluorescent materials provide greater visibility than non-fluorescent materials. However, care should be taken when choosing the right garment to ensure the best protection is provided for its intended use.

AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 High visibility safety garments - Garments for high risk applications

This Standard concerns the design of a garment. It outlines how a garment should be designed in order to meet Class D – Day time use only, Class N - Night time use only, Class D/N – Day/Night use.

Workwear Waterproof Standard

EN 343: The standard for waterproof workwear

The waterproof workwear in our collection complies with the EN 343 standard. This standard encompasses requirements to provide the protection against rain, fog, snow and humidity. The standard also describes the ways in which these requirements are to be tested. A considerable number of professional groups who seriously require workwear that complies with the standard EN 343. In some circumstances waterproof workwear is crucial for any outdoor work activities such as construction or installation technology. In this article we will explain the meaning of the standard EN 343 and what requires specific attention when purchasing this waterproof workwear.

Fire Resistant and Fire Retardant Workwear

If your business deals with dangerous chemicals, electricity, or fire, your employees should wear flame-resistant or fire-retardant clothing.

 

Here is a list of jobs that typically require fire-safe uniforms:

Electricians: Working with electricity puts you at a high risk of arc flash. This enormous energy release can result in temperatures over 19,400 degrees Celsius (35,000F). This arc flash can vaporise the metal conductors it originated from, and therefore, fire-resistant PPE is very much needed.
Welders: From small splashes to high-speed particle impact, a welder is always at risk of fire.
Paper Processing Plant Workers: If the plant catches fire, you can bet that it will grow fast in a blink of an eye. Sprinkler systems and alarms are helpful, but they will not help workers next to the fire. That’s why FR clothing is necessary.
Chemical Plant Workers: As with paper processing plants, chemical plants also catch fires quickly. Therefore, workers should always wear fire-resistant clothing.
Industrial Food Processing Workers: Precooked dinners sit on the shelf. Although safety standards are much stricter now, food processors are surrounded by heat and pressure. These forces can get out of control, causing deadly consequences. Protect employees with proper FR attire.
Construction Workers: A construction site has plenty of hazards, especially when working with materials like cotton and lumber. Workers can get exposed to flames and smoke, causing dangerous smoke inhalation and burns. Ensure everyone is protected with proper FR clothing.
Oil and Gas Field Workers: Fire hazards are everywhere, releasing flammable vapours and gases from oil wells, trucks, and production equipment. Employees should be fire-safe at all times.

FR clothing can either be fire-resistant or fire-retardant. These two types may seem the same at first glance, but they have certain dissimilarities:

When clothing is fire-retardant, its materials can self-extinguish if they ignite. This quality, however, fades over time, especially with continuous use. But flame-retardant clothing tends to be less expensive and easier to access.
Flame-resistant has fibres that do not ignite easily even when they are exposed to fire. These fibres do not disappear or reduce in strength even with frequent washing. However, flame or fire-resistant clothing can be very expensive and difficult to acquire for many organisations.


Both types are self-extinguishing and will burn exceptionally slowly. Any fabric can be used for fire-retardant clothing. However, that fabric should undergo a chemical treatment procedure to prevent flames from burning and spreading quickly.
