Working outdoors can have its advantages but there are many hazards to contend with. Common physical hazards threatening outdoor workers often include weather extremes, insects, noise, moving vehicles or machinery and sun exposure.

Sunburn can cause discomfort and lead to skin cancer while stinging insects can cause allergeric reactions, Zika or Lyme disease.

To insure workers are always visibile, outdoor laborers often wear bright colored or hi-viz clothing to differentiate themselves from their environment.  Hi-Vis t-shirts are a lightweight and comfortable alternative or addition to just wearing a vest.

Available in both short and long sleeve options, workers can still attain up to a Class 3 requirement wearing a garment that they may be less likely to remove during the work day. All of PIP's shirts are made with a breathable Birdseye Mesh to keep workers safe and in compliance. Now you can select a T-shirt that feature 50+ UPF sun block available with or without built-in insect repellent!
