New Developments Mean Greater Safety in the Workplace

The past ten years have seen significant developments in the visibility, quality and wearability of safety wear.

New special purpose fabrics, highly visible colours, the introduction of highly reflective day/night tapes and bindings, personalising of garments to better identify the wearers and the greater awareness and actual use of safety wear by industry, commerce and emergency services have all contributed to a better appreciation of personal safety. Government, unions, industry and the safety wear manufacturers have all contributed to this worthy development.
