Winter has arrived in Norway and, for Omega’s many employees in the Far North, the nights are getting darker and visibility on the roads becomes more challenging. Long, dark stretches of road become even more dangerous and none of us are luminescent. High visibility vests and reflectors are therefore essential if you are heading out into the dark.
Most of us make sure that our children and grandchildren are equipped with reflective vests and reflectors when they go outside. However, it is normally adults that go outside in the dark and we often forget to equip ourselves.
And adults are no more luminescent than children.
“Even in well-lit areas and on stretches of road with streetlights, it is difficult for motorists to see other road users unless they are wearing reflectors,” says Siv Iren Børve from Omega’s Service Center. She encourages everyone to have plenty of reflectors available. “We have equipped all of our Norwegian offices with reflective vests and slap wraps for our team members. If you need new, or more, reflectors, we would be happy if you paid us a visit”, Børve says.
