American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear
ANSI 107-2010 specifies standards for design, requirements for background and combined-performance retroreflective materials, photometric and physical performance requirements for retroreflective materials, and care labeling. ANSI certified high visibility outerwear is offered in three different colors for background and trim materials, fluorescent yellow-green, fluorescent orange-red and fluorescent red. Different retroreflective colors are used for various activities and environments. Police and law enforcement officers typically wear the classic hi-vis yellow-green.
ANSI 107-2010 specifies multiple classes of high-visibility safety apparel for different tactical situations – Class I, Class II, Class III, and Class E. Police officers and emergency responders are typically required to wear a ANSI 107-2010 Class II or Class III garment on duty as they provide higher visibility and protection in low-light or inclement weather conditions. Supplemental Class E garments include high visibility pants, overall, and shorts which should be worn with a performance Class II or Class III garment.
