    For those of you who have employees wear safety vests, in what locations and under what conditions must they wear them? Such as in high traffic areas, busy commercial places, ect. and while performing what tasks do they wear them, mowing, picking up trash, shrub trimming, ect?

    anytime they are close to traffic or moving vehicles, also put out about 6 cones behind trailer about 10 feet apart, angled toward the curb.

    you can go to this site and it will tell you how many cones and warning devices you heed when parked in traffic, it's part of the federal highway code that all states go by.
    i fould it once before by going thru this site.

    I couldn't really sift through all the jibber-jabber to find what I was looking for. So you should have 6 cones spaced 10 feet apart angling towards the curb or side of the road? Thanks for the help.

    in naighborhoods that will do, when you get to divided highways and higher occupancy roadways the requirements go up.
