WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
WHO is calling on goverments to take concrete actions to improve the pedestrian safety on the world's roads. WHO predicts that accidents and deaths on the road will increase dramatically in the coming decades. Statistics show that pedestrians and bikers in particular are at risk.
For this reason the WHO has launched its Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 campaign. We are a proud partners of this program.

Some main risk points for school children on the way to or from school are crossing the road and walking along road.
Distance at which pedestrian seen by driver, with and without SAFENBRITE reflector.

SAFENBRITE in brighter than any other non-battery pedestrian safety reflector on market.
SAFENBRITE is extremely durable. It has endured extensive high quality testing: they are baked, frozen, dropped, immersed into water, and rubbed, all after which reflectors ability to reflect light is checked.
SAFENBRITE is recyclable or can be burnt with other energy waste.
SAFENBRITE is made from food safe quality material: It complies with U.S. FDA 21 CFR 177.1640.
SAFENBRITE in manufactured under high standards: ISO 9001 and 14001. The ISO 14001 , Environment Management System (EMS) standard is an internationally recognized environmental management standard which was first published in 1996.
