New EU standard for PPE Forestry: from high visibility orange to bright pink

The personal protective equipment for the forestry industry, aka PPE Forestry, is now becoming even safer. Drawing on the results of a major study, a new standard governing work clothing will come into force on 1 May 2016; high visibility orange will be changing to bright pink. Millions of foresters and woodsmen are now facing a race against time to equip themselves for the new standard.
