What is ANSI Class 1, 2, 3 = Higher Visibility Clothing

The ANSI and the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) states that specified types, classes and colors of high-visibility clothing are required for workers exposed to traffic hazards, such as road construction workers, surveyors and other workers near roadways.

ANSI certified high-visibility clothing is intended to clearly distinguish the worker from the environment. ANSI high-visibility garments include three components: background material, retro-reflective material (reflective bands that reflect light) and a combination of retro-reflective and fluorescent material.

Background material color and combination material can be either florescent yellow-green or fluorescent orange-red. These safety standards specify three classes of high visibility garments based on the wearers’ activities – differentiated by the amount of background material required, the width of the retro-reflective material used and garment design.

ANSI Class 1

Class 1 clothing is intended for workers near speeds that don’t exceed 25 mph and that have separation from traffic. Class 1 workwear is generally intended for parking attendants, warehouse workers in traffic, shopping cart retrievers and those doing sidewalk maintenance.

ANSI Class 2

Workers who are near roadways where traffic exceeds 25 mph and who need higher-visibility for inclement weather use class 2 workwear. Workers who wear class 2 clothing include railway workers, school crossing guards, parking and toll gate personnel, airport ground crews and law enforcement directing traffic.

ANSI Class 3

Class 3 clothing provides the highest level of visibility protection intended for workers with high task loads in a wide range of weather conditions, working where traffic exceeds 50 mph. Class 3 clothing is recommended for roadway construction personnel, vehicle operators, utility workers, survey crews, emergency responders, railway workers and accident site investigators. The CornerStone Safety Windbreaker helps gives them class 3 protection built to provide the highest level of visibility and waterproof protection from inclement weather.
