Lighting hire to improve safety and efficiency in the dark winter months

Working on construction sites in the dark brings with it increased risks of accident in terms of blind spots and hazards.  So, during the Autumn and Winter months new guidelines and practices may need to be introduced on site in order to reduce the chance of injury. These may include any or all of the following:

  • an awareness of potential hazards to workers are ways to reduce the chance of injury.
  • new traffic control measures
  • new signage
  • the installation of extra lighting

Lighting Hire solutions

Health and Safety Executive advice states that there should be enough lighting around for workers to be able to see and avoid hazards that might be on the ground anywhere on the main internal and external routes that site workers use throughout their working day.

One option here is to look at hiring power and lighting.
