Improving visibility in restricted workspaces

The wellbeing of operatives should be at the forefront of constructors minds. 

To ensure the safety of all on site it is vital that safeguards are in place to mitigate risks to workers, such as, effectively communicating and implementing emergency procedures, adequate training and risk assessments of sites.

Below is an example of how visibility was improved in restricted workspaces:

  • ‘Bolt on’ lighting columns were used for illuminating the workspace where there was no carriageway lighting, instead of using bulky traditional lighting towers;
  • These fitted directly to the varioguard temporary barriers and can be used on any project that uses these barriers. They also allow the lighting to be directed at the workforce, to ensure nearby drivers were not dazzled;
  • Similar columns were used to indicate overhead obstructions and height restrictions.
