    saftey yellow/green

    i never really cared for it a heck of alot, i alwasy kinda thought the grey shirt/greens pants looked really nice. but a few years ago i was sitting accross the street at a bank. watchin a friend adn compeditors LARGE crew/s working and installign mulch on a commercial site. from over 1000 feet away i could count each and every person on the site. 32 people tha was including the 5 guys in teh trucks driving. thats when it hit me, not only was this a good safe color that can be seen, but from a customers stand point its alot easier to see that there are people on your site working and getting things done. if they didnt have that color shirt, they would have just blended in to everyone else on the property. little notice would have been paid attention to the company name on the shirt. but with a visible odd color like this, it is almost over welming the amount of workers that are preforming tasks on your propertys, which makes them feel like they are getting a good value for the money

    A light colored company shirt I have white and a light grey with tan carhartts. We are classified as a desert region. Summers here can get to be up to 110F. With a dark shirt, I'd have to be adjusting sprinkler heads all day long! :laugh::laugh:

    safety green T's with royal blue lettering for jobs and royal blue T's with safety green lettering for estimates, ect... seems everyone has the safety grren, but as the name implies SAFE and as earlier stated guys on property in safety green get you noticed and home owner/business owner know why you're there
