A Different Spell of Hi Vis?High visibility workwear is an important part of certain businesses where the employees have to be visible at all times to stay safe from harm, from machinery, moving parts and vehicles on site. Sometimes however it can be difficult to completely appreciate and understand what you need - that's where we come in. Add to that the grammatical confusion we've encountered many a time when researching the product - and the many different spellings and abbreviations for 'High Visibility'.
The Highly Visible Grammar ConundrumAn abbreviation is a shortening of a word or phrase - taken from the Latin brevis meaning short - but even the word itself can seem a little long can't it? If you were to abbreviate the word abbreviation you could use abbr., abbrv., or abbrev. It's interesting how the English language works, and this little quirk can be found even within our own supply range with high visibility workwear.
Hi Vis, Hi Viz or high visibility, whatever you call your safety wear you can always call Wray Bros or is that Wray Brothers?
However you spell it we have the following high visibility workwear:
- HIGH VISIBILITY - Jackets
- HIGH VIS - Vests
- HI VIS - Trousers
- HI VIZ - Sweatshirts & Fleeces
- HIGH Viz - Polo's
Even just looking at that list is a little exhausting but quite entertaining that something so simple can become mangled and misguided over time, especially when you consider different terms and grammatical rules from British English to American English and back again. It does look like someone's been having a play around with Google Translate for a few hours just to see what's the weirdest way they can find to say High Visibility Workwear!
The Importance of High Visibility WorkwearWhen you come to purchase workwear for safety reasons though, forget about how the name itself is printed on the packaging. Whether High Vis, High-Viz or High-Vises infront of you, the important thing is the quality of the product itself and the safety of your employees as a result of that quality.
