J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is expanding its line of high-visibility apparel that meets Canadian safety requirements.

“And the timing couldn’t be better, as winter brings reduced visibility due to blustery, snowy conditions and comparatively less daylight than other seasons,” it said in a press release.

J. J. Keller SAFEGEAR PPE — the company’s proprietary line of personal protective equipment — now includes even more high-visibility apparel with reflective tape that meets the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z96-22 requirements, including:

  • safety vests
  • sweatshirts
  • T-shirts
  • jackets

To comply with the CSA Standard, any high-visibility safety apparel must meet the following criteria for the stripes/bands:

  • A minimum width of 50 mm
  • A waist-level horizontal stripe/band that goes completely around the body at the navel or belly button.
  • Two vertical stripes on the front passing over the shoulders and down to the waist.
  • A symmetric “X” on the back extending from the shoulders to the waist.
  • For Class 3 apparel, stripes/bands encircling both arms and both legs are added.
