Hi Vis Polo Shirts

Hi Vis Polo Shirts

One of the main reasons behind the popularity of hi vis polo shirts is their versatility – they can be worn by a variety of workers, from those on factory floors to those on construction sites. The inclusion of a collar provides the worker with an overall more polished look than a simple t-shirt. We offer both long and short-sleeved safety polo shirts to help workers dress according to the weather and the hazards imposed by their profession.

When you are required to work throughout the hot Australian summer or under extremely hot conditions, overheating can be as real a problem as a visibility. A worker who overheats may experience dehydration, dizziness, fainting, fatigue and, in extreme situations, even death. Hi vis t shirts and singlets can help workers keep cool under hot conditions, as they are made from fabrics that breathe and sit loosely on the body.

Hi Vis Tops

No matter which of our vests you have selected, rest assured that it will provide you with the visibility and safety that you require.

Did you know hi vis workwear standards have changed?

High visibility workwear standards have recently been altered and many employers may be unaware of the changes. We aim to keep employees safe at all times and minimise risk by recommending products that meet our client’s specifications perfectly. It is important to know what to look for when purchasing workwear for yourself and your employees, especially when it comes to complying with Australian Standards.

The area of hi visibility material on a polo or shirt must not be less than 0.2m (both front and back). So if your company is wearing an older hi vis shirts or hi vis tops that are less than 0.2m on the front and back, your business doesn’t comply with safety standards. Many of the shirts we recommend and supply adhere to all new standards with a high visibility area equal to 0.2m.

The coloured side panel has also been modified. Now, the high visibility material needs to encircle the entire circumference of the torso. As a result, a full side panel is no longer compliant. Whilst you might find cheaper alternatives (which should only be used for promotional use) and whilst the price may seem low, the use of these products on a worksite, as a uniform, could be unfavourable and of low quality.

Below is a quick guide to hi vis workwear and what to look out for:

High visibility garments must be compliant to two standards:
- ASNZS 4602.1. - High Visibility Garments
- AS/NZS1906.4 - High Visibility Materials

High visibility garments (AS/NZS4602) are classified by three classes:
- Class D: Day Use Only (minimum 0.4m2 of fluorescent fabric on the upper torso)
- Class N: Night Use Only (reflective tape applied according to standards)
- Class D/N: Day and Night Use (combination of the above two requirements)

High visibility safety materials are classified in three classes:
- Class F: Fluorescent fabric (Day Use Only).
- Class R: Reflective fabric for (Night Use Only).
- Class RF: Both Fluorescent and Reflective (Day/Night Use).

UV Protection
Work wear should have ultraviolet protection and must comply with AS/NZS4399 (UV Protection). For employees with sun exposure, the UPF rating on garments should be 40-50+ (Excellent Category). Ensure that AS/NZS4602 and AS/NZS4399 (UV Protection) compliance are shown or permanently attached to garments.

100% cotton high visibility workwear is only compliant in jobs where it is dangerous to wear polyester.
