Smith, John R.. 2012. High-Visibility Garments and Worker Safety on Roadways. 1251 2818P. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center.

Forest Service employees routinely work on public roadways while performing their duties, creating a potentially dangerous work environment. Roadside workers are required by law under Title 23 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 655, to wear high-visibility safety apparel when working around moving vehicles. There are exceptions to this regulation for firefighters and law enforcement personnel. This report is intended to help all Forest Service employees understand high-visibility safety apparel requirements.
