LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Safety can be a beach! And a Los Angeles based apparel company has made it their mission to encourage others to feel the same. Hawaiian Safety Shirts are making a regular appearance at construction job sites across the country, as those workers mandated to wear safety vests are opting for a new look – a safe and fun Hawaiian alternative. The high visibility, OSHA compliant, ANSI class 2 and 3 safety vests are individually hand-crafted and guaranteed to be safe and fun compliant.


Mark "Huff" Huffaker, creative genius and company president shares, "We understand that safety is serious business on construction sites and at public events, but no one said you can't have a little fun with it."

Having started the company in 2011, Huffaker and his team soon realized there was a market for an inexpensive way to jazz up safety gear and boost morale among co-workers, so he quickly leveraged the fun-loving, laid back appeal of the Hawaiian-themed designs to safety gear.

Initially starting with one lightweight mesh vest, Hawaiian Safety Shirts now come with options for sleeves or a heavier knit material, providing alternatives for workers as the seasons change. Perfect for safety incentive awards, promotions or unique gifts, Hawaiian Safety Shirts have been gaining popularity around the country as what could be the next big fashion statement for on-the-job wear.

Shane Davis, crew chief for Davis Landscaping & Design, shares, "Hawaiian Safety Shirts have been a great way to make safety on the job site fun and more tolerable. It's also been a great way to add a little individuality between crews."

A premier fashion innovation that brings the beach to the job site, Hawaiian Safety Shirts are:

  • OSHA compliant (ANSI Class 2 and 3 available)
  • Highly visible
  • Versatile for nearly every season with lightweight mesh, sleeved or heavier knit options
  • And most of all, fun!
