Ensuring Compliance of Reflective Garments

I recently was forwarded a really good article published by the National Safety Council that answers some important questions about high visibility safety garments.

"Q:I heard some people are selling counterfeit reflective garments that
aren’t ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 compliant. What makes a garment compliant?

A: Not only are some vest
manufacturers oblivious to what the ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 standard really means,
but some are placing inaccurate, incorrect and misleading information on the
garment label itself. The International Safety Equipment Association
establishes performance criteria for safety garments and their classifications.
These guidelines include basic performance criteria and testing requirements
that manufacturers must meet to certify that a garment meets the standards.”
