Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 10, 2009
Occupational safety concerns predominate for law enforcement, construction, transportation, and other industry professionals who work in low-light conditions with increased dangers - such as proximity to high-speed traffic and industrial machinery and equipment. Many of these dangers can be reduced by the use of super-reflective Vedante™ POPBANDS™, which greatly increase nighttime visibility with reflectivity up to 1500 feet, 700 CPL (much more reflective than competitor products).
"There is a need to increase visibility for those who work in low-light situations, whether it's a police officer directing traffic, a machine operator at a nighttime construction site, or a school crossing guard." said Vedante CEO Barbara Kantor. "Vedante products meet high standards in both reflectivity and durability, making POPBANDS™ ideal for many industry workplaces."
There has been significant interest in Vedante products from the government sector, oil companies, and transportation organizations. A global leader in full-service engineering, construction, and operations expressed interest in POPBANDS because they "make safety fun" for workers. POPBANDS are colorful and fashionable, which encourages people to wear them to keep safe on the job.
