Our customers or people around town don't ever read what our shirts say too much. But they definitely do remember that we're the company with the bright red trucks and bright red shirts on our workers. So I think it's good to keep it consistent. We get a lot of compliments on our imaging.
I'm not disagreeing with you.

To me, the neon yellow stands out more, from a safety perspective. A little more highly visible.

i like the orange better. that safety green is yellow not green.

they make neon green shirts too if you wanna look at that option. they are actually more green in color.

Go with green!!! It's a good fit for the industry. As for orange, that is a better fit for the County Road Commission AND State Highway Dept. And yellow reminds me of DHL and pizza delivery.

Go with the best of both worlds. Khaki work shirts. And then issue florescent safety vests to wear when working near busy road right-of-ways.

We service a lot of banks and high traffic areas and we have safety green shirts. They are great when they are new but the color seems to fade after being washed a few times. I have received quite a few compliments on our appearances but it seems like a lot of companies are using the safety green color now. I also get a lot of state/ county workers waving at us.
