ANSI 107 Updates You Should Know About

ANSI 107-2015 now covers ANSI 107-2010 and 207-2011. ANSI 107-2015 has also added new target worker groups O and R to create a broader range of high-visibility safety apparel (HVSA), which helps provide safety from a broad range of potential hazards for both managers and safety professionals alike. ANSI now includes the Type O category, which requires protection from HVSA for workers who may come into contact with a vehicle moving at 25mph or less. Additionally, a revision to the minimum area requirements for reflective materials now allows for smaller-sized garments that remain in compliance with ANSI.
