FWHA Says Newly Revised ANSI/ISEA 2015 Meets MUTCD High Visibility Garment Requirements

MUTCD ANSI 107 complianceThe Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has announced on June 1st that all high-visibility safety garments that are compliant with the newly revised American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Accessories (ANSI/ISEA 107-2015), will also be considered compliant with the 2009 MUTCD Manual (manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices).
The MUTCD currently requires that anyone working on the highway, all flaggers and crossing guards must utilize safety apparel that adheres to ANSI Class 2 or 3 (ANSI/ISEA 107) standards - and that Police officers, fire fighters and other emergency responders who might be exposed to highway traffic are required to wear ANSI/ISEA 207 compliant garments.
Due to the recent changes in late 2015 of the ANSI/ISEA 107 standard - which addresses specific differences between ANSI 107 and 207 - any high-visibility safety garments which meet or exceed the newly revised ANSI/ISEA 107 will now also satisfy the requirements of MUTCD mandates.
