Welcome to the latest news from DS Safety – Safety Boots and Safety Workwear specialists.
A new product has been launched to keep railway workers safe, especially those working trackside. The new product brings protective clothing into the 21st century.
The new clothing products help others see workers when there there are poor light conditions or it is dark.
This means that railway workers and those who work in other dark conditions can not only be seen when there is no other light around but can also see where they are walking too.
The clever technology works as follows:
“Fhoss Technology® has combined the traditional reflective tape with an electroluminescent core that sits behind the semi-transparent tape and actively emits light. Therefore when light is not available the tape emits light as if it were reflecting it…”
Standard high visibility clothing works differently, as it collects light and then reflects it back at the source of the light.
While this might sound like a miracle product, it does require a tiny power source, which is a mini-rechargeable powercell. This allows 12 hours constant usage and is located in a small pocket.
The high visibility product also has an anti-entanglement system which allows the products to be safely removed should it become trapped and potentially be lifesaving.

Welcome to the latest blog from DS Safety – Safety Boots & High Visibility Clothing.
it looks like we’re set for spell of decent weather across the country this week – will be good to see the sun at last, however we are by no means clear of the severe weather this season, so it’s important to be prepared on both a personal level and at work or on the construction site.
After a spell of bad weather, it is crucial to assess your work area, especially conditions underfoot and above, to take into account any new risks that may now pose to workers.
Staying safe in bad weather is very important for obvious reasons – many slips, trips and falls occur because of a sudden change in underfoot and weather conditions, so it is vitally important to ensure you have the correct safety boots and safety clothing available.
DS Safety has been supplying safety footwear for over 25 years. During this period our range of products has increased to include all areas of personal protection. These have been supplied to Local Authorities, Hospitals, Construction Companies, Educational Establishments, Tradesmen and many others. All of our products conform to the appropriate British and European legislation.
Thanks for joining us again at DS Safety – Safety Boots, Safety Clothing and High Visibility Clothing.
The clocks will be going forward on 25th March to British Summer Time (BST) – however the day that drowsy drivers lose an hour’s sleep actually results in an increase in road accidents during of around 15 percent!
Driver drowsiness is compared on the same scale to jet lag at times, given this shock increase in accidents. With more and more vehicles using our already overcrowded roads and ever increasing amount of roadworks (especially towards the end of the financial year), this is a crucial time for safety boots and safety workwear.
It is vital that high visibility work clothing is kept clean and replaced where damaged, and this message is clear to all in construction, rail and road industries given the safety risks that many workers are expected to deal with.
The message is clear, if you are driving, make sure you are feeling fresh and awake before you get behind the wheel and if you are working in a position requiring safety clothing and safety boots, make sure your equipment is clean and functional.
