Comments From The Mining Industry:

“I’ve been coal mining underground since 1977 and have seen what can happen when a person doesn’t wear reflective clothing. We had one employee get run over and killed…he was wearing non-reflective, everyday clothes…the driver couldn’t see him.” Archie Coburn, Federal MSHA Inspector

MSHA said, “This type of accident can be prevented by wearing reflective clothing to ensure higher visibility when walking or working near moving equipment.*”
