Bibliographic information Nov.-Dec. 1995, No.6, 4p. Insert. Illus.
Abstract Safety data sheet concerning the characteristics of high-visibility work clothing to be worn for by construction workers going about on foot on construction sites in France. Such workers are in fact "obstacles" for normal drivers as well as for the operators of construction equipment and vehicles, which is why they must wear highly visible clothing. Dimensioned designs of such clothing, based on French standard NF EN 471, illustrate the text.
