It’s time to reflect! In the dark, it’s hard for motorists to see pedestrians on the side of the road. While pedestrians can see a car approaching from afar, they’re effectively invisible to the driver unless they’re wearing something reflective.
On 18 November, the HSE unit will distribute free reflective tags to the CERN community in Restaurants 1, 2 and 3 at lunchtime. They’re small, neat, and they come with a metal chain so that they can be attached to your clothes or a bag. They’ll make you visible from a distance of 125 metres and therefore safer on the streets this winter.
This is the third year that the HSE unit has been running the campaign (there was no distribution in 2020), and the new reflective tag design is an homage to 50 years of hadron colliders at CERN, modelled on the cross-section of an Intersecting Storage Rings (ISR) magnet.
Be seen – be safe!
