Lil Worker Safety Gear

Comox, BC Best Concept:
Top 5 Finalist
Employees: 1 In Business Since: 2015

In 2015 James Flawith created Lil Worker Safety Gear, North America’s first line of REAL safety gear designed specifically for children. James is not a businessman. He’s not an entrepreneur – he’s a father. A father who wants to protect children from careless drivers, from speeding vehicles, from getting lost.

James started off making safety gear to protect his own children, and felt obligated to make it available to help other parents protect their children as well. Lil Worker Safety Gear is an idea born from a sincere desire to make the world a safer place, not just a concept to create profit.

  20. Jody

    What an awesome product! Way to set the bar high on something that seems so simple and should be easy to find, but obviously wasn’t a choice for our kids! #vizyourkids

  24. Teresa Morrison

    Wonder product. Great idea. Investing in the future. For the safety of our children is the best way to protect the future.

  25. Joanna Tancon

    I love your products ! My daycare kids are suited up with the hi-viz vests anytime we leave the property, and most of the boys want to wear them when they’re “working” in the back yard with their diggers and dump trucks. The vests are easy to put on, comfortable to wear, and highly effective in keeping my kids visible and safe. I love being able to spot the kids so easily at the playground, and get tons of comments about them. I bought my grandkids the raincoats and they wear the coats daily on their bike rides to school. We especially love the see-through part of the hood- their vision isn’t impaired like with other raincoats.

  26. Great idea
    I love the safety visor on the hoods.
    Can’t wait til we put an order in!
