EN 20471 Standard


EN ISO 20471: 2013

EN ISO 20471:2013 is an international standard that imposes requirements on visible workwear for employees in high-risk areas. Using the right safety workwear is important and must beprioritised. Even if working in areas where visibility is important only takes place during a short part of the working day. EN ISO 20471 replaces the older norm, EN 471.

ISO 20471:2013 specifies requirements for high visibility clothing which is capable of visually signalling the user's presence. The high visibility clothing is intended to provide conspicuity of the wearer in any light condition when viewed by operators of vehicles or other mechanized equipment during daylight conditions and under illumination of headlights in the dark.

EN ISO 20471 is divided into three classes, in accordance to the risk zone you work in and to how well the product is able to protect the employee. It is the visibility requirement – and thus the requirement for the area consisting of reflectors and fluorescent materials – that determines which class you need to choose. In all products, the reflecting ability of all reflectors fulfils what previously corresponded to class 2.

Performance requirements are included for colour and retroreflection as well as for the minimum areas and for the placement of the materials in protective clothing.

Retroreflective material requirements

• EN 471 Level 1 separate performance material requirements have been removed. The minimum performance requirement for separate performance material is the same as the former EN 471 requirement for level 2 retroreflective materials. In assessing the retro-reflective performance of materials, the method requires materials to be assessed on the poorest performing segment of a tape.

• The retroreflective tape must be tested after being subjected to the maximum number of washing and drying cycles stated by the manufacturer rather than washing with a final dry as in EN 471.

• The manufacturer can now specify the washing process and temperature for testing however the care label must reflect this.
