Do you know the current regulations on high visibility clothing?

The high-visibility clothing that makes up many of the work equipment of certain professions is subject to the regulations governing Personal Protective Equipment. This legislation defines what high-visibility clothing should be like in Spain, considered, like all other PPE, as the first line of defence to protect workers from being run over by a vehicle or equipment being handled by someone else.

The National Institute of Safety and Hygiene is the body in charge of implementing the EN 180 20471/ 13 + A1/ 16 standard based on Law 31/1995, which regulates PPE. Many companies are unaware of the parameters set by this law for high visibility clothing, but at T2S, we know them inside out.

The legislation requires workers exposed to the risk of being run over by moving vehicles or machinery to wear appropriate high-visibility equipment. High visibility protective clothing is worn when in proximity to moving traffic or in an emergency where it must be possible to identify the persons responsible.

Under what circumstances should high visibility clothing be worn in Spain?

Current regulations specify that high visibility clothing is considered to be that which has been specially designed so that a worker or operator can be highly visible in any type of hazardous conditions, whether it is during the day or at night when the headlights of a vehicle are projected onto the worker.

At T2S we can advise you which type of high visibility clothing we recommend for the summer or also in a specific situation which garment from our catalogue will offer greater protection to you and the professionals in your team. 

Here are some of the circumstances in which high visibility clothing should be worn in Spain:

  • Vehicle. When working near a large construction site or in road maintenance it is mandatory to wear a hi-visibility waistcoat.

  • Large machinery. If you are working in an area where there is large machinery, it is essential to wear high visibility clothing. In the construction sector, for example, large machinery and trucks abound.

  • Poor visibility.  In circumstances where there is poor visibility, such as at night, it is advisable to wear high-visibility clothing, especially if there is frequent vehicle traffic. Several studies show that drivers’ visual acuity decreases by up to 70% at night, hence the importance of protecting yourself.
