Tight deadlines and hot weather make night construction jobs a necessity, but these late hours can increase injury risks due to fatigue and lack of light. Thankfully, safety-minded site managers can reduce accidents with high-powered lights. Here’s a look at how LED light products from SpeedTech Lights can increase your safety at night:
High-powered LED strobe bars are great for directing vehicle and foot traffic. Programmable light patterns can direct traffic in any direction, prompt vehicles to slow down, and catch the attention of drivers late at night. This easily seen visual information helps reduce the chance of collisions on your worksite.
Light Up Roads
Unlit roads and parking spaces in the evening can put both pedestrians and drivers in danger. New lights are one of the easiest ways to improve night driving safety on your worksite—consider mounted lights for vehicles and spinning beacons for parking spots.
Invest in Warning Beacons
Construction projects and roadwork sites are full of potential fall risks. Employees need proper warnings when working near freshly dug holes or trenches. A bit of warning tape and a beacon ensure workers are alerted to fall dangers from a safe distance. The same beacons can keep vehicles from crashing at night as well.
Use Audio Signals
Loud sirens can alert workers across huge worksites of any potential dangers. Long and short bursts are great for predetermined messages or relating an emergency from a distance. The sound of these sirens can also help to deter unauthorized pedestrians from getting too close to your facilities.
