A great thing about safety vests is that they come in a variety of colors and styles which can help you organize your team. You can assign a specific color of vest to a certain task team, or by levels of authority. First, we will discuss a bit about safety vests and why you should use them.

Why Use Safety Vests?

Construction sites can be extremely dangerous, especially if a worker is failed to be seen. Safety vests are a great solution for high visibility needs because they’re easy to layer over existing clothes, are extremely affordable, and can be used indefinitely until the garment is worn down. Another bonus is that safety vests are comfortable and come in a variety of thicknesses for any weather. 

Denote Authority Levels with Safety Vests

Use colors to denote levels of authority on your job site. Often, there are new workers who might not know the superior by face, or vice versa. Having a designated color for the new workers and one for the superiors can lower the chances of miscommunication and save time by preventing confusion.

Determine Tasks by Vest Color

On multi-faceted jobs, you may decide to organize your team by colors to aid in communication and understanding. For example, when constructing a building, you may give electrical workers one color of vest, while giving carpenters a different color.
