Tow Truck Operator Safety Vests

One of the hazards that Tow Truck Operators face every day is moving traffic in and around their emergency scene. Personnel without a safety vest are in danger of being struck by a vehicle while operating along roadways.

ANSI Reflective Vests and other high visibility apparel significantly improve the safety of Tow Operators at motor vehicle accident scenes. Tow Truck Operators are classified as first responders at roadway emergency scenes and are in great danger when there is significant motor vehicle traffic near their work zone.

By their very nature, motor vehicle accidents cause responders to work on or near a roadway. This danger is precisely what the new Federal Highway Administration Rule 23 CFR Part 634 is all about. The rule requires the use of ANSI Reflective Safety Vests for all workers on or around Federal Aid Highways. Please see below for the rule.

First Responders need to be especially vigilant and use the required reflective safety vests when on the scene of accidents on limited access roads where speeds are higher and driver reaction times are shorter.
