ST. PAUL, Minn. – ANSI/ISEA 107 – the US standard addressing low worker visibility as an occupational hazard during the day, low-light conditions and at night, by ANSI direction is updated every 5 years. The most current edition published February 1, 2016.
There are four main topics covered in today’s standard: garment design, performance of both retroreflective and background materials, and care labeling. The biggest change to the new edition of ANSI/ISEA 107 is the combination of ANSI/ISEA 107 and 207. The High-Visibility Product group developed a Type designation so the ANSI/ISEA 207 garments are still separated. For example, Type O is for off-road applications and was formerly ANSI/ISEA 107 Class 1 garments; Type R is for roadway applications with options for both Class 2 and Class 3 – these were formerly ANSI/ISEA 107 Class 2 and 3 garments; Type P is for public safety – fire, police and EMS – and has options for both Class 2 and Class 3, and was formerly ANSI/ISEA 207.
To help our customers better understand the impacts of the new updates, we have created ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 Made Easier: A quick reference guide for high visibility safety apparel. This document summarizes the main provisions of the updated standard and helps safety professionals understand its provisions including minimum performance criteria and basic design requirements.
