Discover more about our safety apparel testing expertise

Safety clothing, apparel and gear – such as road cones – are a critical aspect of workplace health and safety regulations. In high-risk work environments, particularly those involving moving vehicles or machinery, the use of specialty high-visibility items are essential. Within Australia and New Zealand, and across the world, there are strict specifications around high-visibility clothing and gear to ensure these provide appropriate visibility, quality and safety, across varying weather conditions and work environments.

Manufacturers of safety clothing, apparel and products must be familiar with the latest regulations and standards to ensure legal compliance. Our lab team can assist in ensuring these measures are met, with thorough material, product, garment and apparel testing.
