CST/berger puts safety first with high-visibility equipment, including safety vests, safety caps, traffic cones, warning flags, “Heads-Up” rod levels and other necessary safety equipment. Workers are visible both night and day, wet or dry, with CST/berger’s lighted safety vest and lighted tripod/safety belt.


The “Heads-Up” rod level allows the rod person to look up, keeping the instrument person in sight, and know when to relax or “plumb up.” It features a 10-minute precise vial with two viewing angles with large viewing aperture, and a special prism allows direct reading of the adjustable circular bubble. Its machined aluminum housing with heavy-duty screw allows use with poles of 19 to 38 mm diameter.
