he Traffic Vest Harness (left) is intended to arrest falls and aid work positioning. The FPD700/3D nylon vest–style, sized harness is built into a lightweight mesh traffic vest. The Cable Lockout (right) allows for the securing of single or multiple gate valves or circuit breaker boxes, as well as for the immobilizing of large or awkwardly shaped machinery. The hasp can accomidate up to six padlocks, preventing accidental startup. he SonoBlaster Work Zone Intrusion Alarm is intended to provide a clear, audible warning when a vehicle has entered a worksite unsafely. It attaches to any traffic pylon or safety barrier. When disturbed, the device's CO2–powered horn will emit a 125dB–blast to warn workers and alert distracted drivers. he Hydration System for Full Body Harness allows a worker to keep a fluid source nearby without it getting in the way. The system clips onto the back of a harness just below the D–ring, and once secured will move with the harness. A 50–ounce reservoir in the nylon carrier is connected to a 38–in. insulated drinking tube, featuring a securing clip, no–leak bite valve and durable cap to prevent spills or entanglements. he Radio Hi–Visibility Earmuff address the worksite demands of hearing protection, worker safety and morale.

The earmuffs protect against hearing loss with a sound reduction rating of 25 dB, but their own volume cannot exceed 82 dB, ensuring that wearers are not cut off from the world around them. he Met Guard Steel Toe boots feature an asymmetrically designed toe shield for increased movement and comfort, as well as an external shield made of ABS material and polyurethane foam.
