Online, September 2, 2010 (Newswire.com) - The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requires that all workers within the right of way of a federal-aid highway who are exposed either to traffic or construction equipment within the work area shall wear high-visibility safety apparel. This is because there has been an increasing awareness of incident and accidents arising from low-visibility vehicular traffic conditions. Road workers are more likely to feature in a vehicular accident than any average worker. FHWA notes that high-visibility is a primary and critical need for any worker whose tasks is anywhere near moving vehicles and equipment. With the workers focused on their tasks, they will not be able to watch over the hazardous surroundings they are in.
