Class Warfare in High Visibility

Different jobs have different safety requirements and it is important to know the difference when shopping online. Here is the difference:

  • Class 2: Items meeting these safety requirements have a single, reflective stripe around the stomach along with a single strip on the sleeve.
  • Class 3: Items with this classification have two reflective stripes around the stomach. It also has a stripe around the sleeve; if it is long-sleeved, two sleeve stripes are required.

Here is some examples:
