Construction safety vests are not only ideal, but can fulfill a requirement from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). According to OSHA, garments for flaggers can be a variety of fluorescent colors, including orange, yellow or yellow green. These garments can be construction safety vests, shirts or jackets. Flaggers working at night should wear construction safety vests or comparable garments with a retro reflective material.
