Australian Standard 4602.1.2011 Amendment 1:2016 – Key Points
Biomotion Taping – twin-taped workwear makes workers more visible, therefore safer. The additional reflective strip added to the forearm (Biomotion taping) is industry best practice and is a recommendation in Australian Standard 4602.1.2011 Amendment No 1:2016-11-23 to significantly enhance the long distance recognition of the wearer as a human figure when viewed by reflective light (see AS/NZS 4602.1:2011, page 17).
100 Wash Tape - has enhanced durability. That’s up to triple the number of washes of other reflective tapes approved to Australian Standards AS/NZS 1906.4:2010. This enables compliance with Australian Standards AS/NZS 4602.1:2011, page 21, Amendment No. 1 November 2016 which discusses that garments should be inspected on a regular basis and replaced if they are badly damaged, soiled, faded or retro reflective material has ceased to function. In constant day/night use garments should be critically examined at 3 – 6 month intervals
