(Image source: Marco Verch/Flickr)Dubai's Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) said it has endorsed a high-visibility safety jacket for female staff doing field work at RTA's construction and project sites

The Traffic and Roads Agency and Women Committee of the RTA coordinated with each other on the initiative.

“The underlying objective of the Safety Jacket for female staff working at construction and operation sites of the RTA, especially during summer, is to achieve colour symmetry between the Safety Jacket and the theme of the working environment,” said Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency, RTA.

“The aim is to make female staff more visible to others working on site, and minimise the potential risks to which they are liable while moving around. It is noteworthy that the Safety Jacket conforms to the corporate identity of the RTA,” Maitha bin Adai, added.

The uniform is a pinkish jacket with the RTA log and reflective tape compatible with the technical specifications of the British Standards BS EN 471 - Class 2 & 3.

The jacket can be used during events, official and site visits that do not involve high-risk areas.
