What does Hi Vis mean?

High visibility clothing is sometimes shortened to hi vis or hi viz. Hi vis clothing refers to any garment that is highly luminescent in its natural matt property, or easily discernible from any background. Hi vis clothing is usually worn on the torso and arm area of the body (like a vest or jacket).

 

What do hi vis Colours mean?

The following colours in hi vis workwear mean the following:

Orange offers the best visibility against almost any background, especially industrial greys, whites and natural greens. Whether it is day or night, oranges are the most visible and the closest to red. In trade settings, the colour orange means “caution-proceed carefully”. 

Meanwhile, both fluorescent yellow high visibility PPE creates a strong contrast against dark greys and black. Fluorescent yellow is the brightest colour on the chromatic scale and the most widely worn shade, the colour orange is associated with construction and roadside work. Orange also has a stronger position in identifying people while driving in the dark. 

 

Is Hi Vis PPE?

In construction, industrial or other work environments, employees are required to wear high visibility clothing as a part of their personal protective equipment (PPE).

Work-related injuries and fatalities are common due to low visibility. For work personnel on the road, it’s crucial to be visible during the daytime and night. Recent years, requirements on wearing fluorescent and reflective clothing have become a part of daily work. 

Wearing hi vis clothing helps lower accidents relating to poor vision. Due to the bright colour and reflective properties used in these clothing items, drivers have a higher chance to avoid hitting workers while on the road.

 

What is the best high visibility colour?

When it comes to external work environments, the best high visibility colours for hi vis clothing in Australia are orange followed by yellow (sometimes known as lime). The two colours offer the best visibility against almost any background colour and are the most reflective at night- especially natural greens, greys, blacks and whites.
