Ergodyne, makers of Tenacious Work Gear, has announced the launch of three new hi-vis vests for construction work.
"Ostensibly, this launch is about three new hi-vis vest styles commonly requested by worksites," said Tim Gallant, product director, Ergodyne. "But on a deeper level, it's a testament to our mission of listening to safety professionals and giving them what they need to ensure the well-being of their teams in the most demanding work environments."
"In a highly commodified category like hi-vis vests, it's crucial to differentiate ourselves by emphasizing the importance of compliance, standards and worksite realities," said Gallant. "It's sad to say, but we've witnessed the consequences of subpar safety gear, and the hi-vis world is full of bottom-dollar bidders."
Leading the lineup of new hi-vis vests is the GloWear 8251HDZ-BK Two-Tone Hi-Vis Safety Vest (Type R, Class 2), which is available in lime and orange. The GloWear 8315BA Hi-Vis Breakaway Safety Vest (Type R, Class 3) features a breakaway design for disconnection when entangled, minimizing the risk of accidents and injuries around machinery and moving parts. Rounding out the new trio is the GloWear 8210Z-BK Mesh Hi-Vis Safety Vest (Type R, Class 2) a “great basic black front vest for doing the dirty work,” said Gallant.
Beyond the new vests, Ergodyne provides a responsive, full-scale program designed to assist safety professionals in navigating the complexities of compliance. This holistic approach ensures that Ergodyne's product offering goes beyond gear, empowering safety pros to make informed decisions and prioritize worker safety.
"We're really in the weeds on this stuff down to the last square inch of fabric," said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. "That means supporting our solutions with the expertise we've compiled over the last 40 years and continue to compile every day. As we like to say, "safety is not a commodity.'"
