AI workers join glow-in-the-dark brigade

28 Jul 14 Latest construction company to buy into glow-in-the-dark hi-viz gear is Aggregate Industries.

Based in Scotland, both the asphalt and highways divisions of Aggregate Industries (AI) have purchased the Fhoss Technology powered light safety wear for their on-site workers, to allow them to be more visible in the dark.

Unlike traditional reflective tape, which works by reflecting off an additional light source, Fhoss’s technology allows workers to be light up without the need for ambient light.

Danny Taggart, site manager with the Scottish asphalt division of Aggregate Industries, said:  “When wearing Fhoss, it is really noticeable just how much the boys on the ground stand out in the dark. Unfortunately, there are always going to be some areas of our site where ambient light is not present. However, with Fhoss, this doesn’t matter. When wearing their jackets, my men can be seen at all times, with or without the presence of an additional light source and from a good distance away. “
