When purchasing a high visibility waistcoat, or any type of PPE of this type, it is important to bear in mind that there are a series of standards and approvals that garments must comply with to be able to guarantee the protection expected of them.
The EN ISO 20471 standard classifies high-visibility garments in three levels, according to their level of protection: class 1 reflective clothing has the lowest level of protection, class 2 has an intermediate level of protection, while class 3 provides the highest protection.
