Work Wear - Emergency Medical Technicians


Emergency Medical Technicians need garments that address the issues of blood borne pathogens and allow access to vital equipment. Additional high priority concerns include breathability, comfort and safety. By applying 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material to EMS garments, visibility can be enhanced, especially if the retroreflective trim is configured to the design specifications laid out in the ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 standard. Should the site of the accident be on or near a roadway, EMS professionals, typically selecting to wear dark blue uniforms, are putting themselves at risk to passing motorists.

The American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel addresses the need for 360 degree coverage of retroreflective materials for situations where workers can not fully focus on passing traffic due to their involvement in their work/situation. Please check the "Where to Buy" section of the Scotchlite reflective material web site for information on manufacturers offering ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 compliant EMS work wear.
