This paper describes the design and evaluation of an alerting vest for construction workers. Four different alerts and modalities were compared through an empirical study. We measured the response time to different alerts while the users performed three distinct tasks. We found that the modality of each alert has a significant effect on time and also observed a significant interaction between the alert type and the task being executed.
