Hi-Vis Embroidery – Why You Should Be Investing In Custom Embroidered Safety Gear

Worker safety should always be a top priority in your workplace, and one of the most effective ways to ensure worker safety is to provide your team with safety apparel. Keep reading to discover how custom safety gear with hi-vis embroidery can keep your workers safe and feeling their best while on the job.

Hi-Vis Can Be an Essential Requirement in Some Jobs

Hi-vis or high-visibility apparel is essential in work environments with low light or poor visibility. Wearing such apparel ensures that workers can easily see colleagues during low visibility. If workers can see each other, it reduces the likelihood of running into each other while carrying hazardous materials or piloting vehicles and other heavy machinery.

Compared to other colors, the human eye responds to reflective colors faster. The typical high-vis apparel features reflective and highly contrasting fabrics that help the wearer stand out and be more visible in all lighting conditions. The more visible a person is, the easier it is to spot and avoid them when visibility is low.

You can find hi-vis work apparel offered as vests, shirts, jackets, and other clothing. However, if you want your team to really stand out, you should clothe them in custom safety apparel with hi-vis embroidery. Embroidering your brand name on your work apparel will make it more visually appealing and differentiate your team from other workers. Custom embroidered uniforms can also turn your team into walking billboards that continuously spread brand awareness for your company.

Do you need help picking custom safety gear that you can optimize with hi-vis embroidery? Here are your best options:

Enhanced Visibility Fleece Pullover Hoodie

If your team needs work apparel that keeps them comfortable and visible when it is cold and dim, you cannot go wrong with the CornerStone Enhanced Visibility Fleece Pullover Hoodie. The hoodie meets ANSI 107 requirements regarding using reflective materials and colors to boost the wearer’s visibility.

You can get a bright orange or yellow CornerStone Enhanced Visibility hoodie and enhance its aesthetics and visibility with hi-vis embroidery on the chest. Lastly, since the hoodie’s fabric wicks moisture, workers can comfortably wear it on its own or layer with it.

Hi-Vis Class 3 Lined Full-Zip Hooded Sweatshirt

The Berne Hi-Vis Class 3 Lined Full-Zip Hooded Sweatshirt is an excellent option if you need custom embroidered workwear for layering. Your team can wear the hoodie under a jacket or vest to stay warm or wear it on its own.

The hoodie’s hi-vis yellow color ensures that anyone can see the wearer from a distance in low-light conditions, and the polyester fleece fabric holds color well to prevent fading. Also, the hoodie has a two-inch reflective tape strategically sewn into it for even more visibility.

Select Lightweight Snag-Proof Enhanced Visibility Polo

The CornerStone Select Lightweight Snag-Proof Enhanced Visibility Polo is available in blue and reflective yellow. The reflective yellow variant is the best work apparel option for teams working in low visibility conditions.

Besides being visible, the shirt is comfortable, thanks to its moisture-wicking and breathable fabric that keeps workers cool and sweat-free on hot days. The fabric is also snag-proof to prevent workplace accidents, such as loose threads getting ripped by moving machinery.

ANSI 107 Class 3 Economy Waterproof Insulated Bomber Jacket

The CornerStone ANSI 107 Class 3 Economy Waterproof Insulated Bomber Jacket is the go-to custom safety gear for most teams that work in rough weather and low-light conditions. The jacket’s fabric is 100% polyester with a water-repellent finish and 100% polyfill insulation to keep out the elements.

The jacket also features an insulated and adjustable hood for superior protection against wind and wet weather. You can get the jacket in safety orange or yellow. Regardless of the color worn by your team, they will be visible in low light, thanks to the ANSI 107 standard reflective tape wrapped around the chest and sleeves.

ANSI 107 Class 2 Mesh Tee

Is a reflective jacket or hoodie too hot for your workplace? If so, go for the Cornerstone ANSI 107 Class 2 Mesh Tee. The brightly colored t-shirt comes with a two-inch reflective tape wrapped around the front and back to keep the wearer visible at all times.

The 100% polyester fabric and 5000MM water-repellant 300-denier ripstop shell keep water out, while the 100% polyester lining insulates the wearer to minimize heat loss.

The adjustable hood and body of the parka are bright yellow, and the reflective two-inch tape wrapped around the jacket keeps the wearer visible even in the dark. You can get the jacket in sizes ranging from small to 3XL and have your brand logo stitched into the chest.
