When worn in certain work environments, these vests help prevent injury to those who wear them. By allowing enhanced visibility to co-workers, motorists, and heavy equipment operators, there is a reduced chance for serious accidents on the job.

Reflective safety vests are also helpful to runners and cyclists in high-traffic areas as well as emergency responders to which safety vests offer easy identification in a crowded place.

In the world of high visibility safety vests, the American National Standards Institute, or ANSI, commissioned a set of guidelines in its manual ANSI/ISEA 107-2004. Those guidelines are the standard by which the design and production of safety vests are recommended to adhere for maximum visibility and protection of its wearers. The standards specify the size, color, and type and placement of reflective material. The rules are broken down into separate classes, and each class has its own way of meeting these standards to satisfy the many different needs of the specific user.
