Check that you have all of the equipment you need to safely sign, light and guard your site.

High visibility jackets must be worn when you are operating outside the working space, e.g. setting out, maintaining or removing signing, lighting, guarding and temporary traffic control. Your employer may also require you to wear high visibility clothing to the same standard within the working space. High visibility clothing must be correctly fastened and must be maintained in a clean and usable condition.

Further guidance on equipment, and technical standards for high visibility jackets, are given in the Equipment and vehicles section of this Code.
