Keeping your workers and members of the public safe is your primary concern at your worksites. The best way to accomplish those tasks is by having the illumination and signs you need. At AABCO Barricade and Sign Co., our specialty is safety on the job in construction zones and for the public. We provide equipment to meet those goals, and we’ll look at the best use of portable construction light towers in Washington here as an example.
Seeing is safety. When workers are not operating in dim and dark conditions, there is less risk of an injury or project setback from an error. A construction site bathed in good lighting is a better environment for the workers while also being easily identifiable and avoidable by anyone who is not supposed to be there.
The best way to use construction light towers is to place them where there can fully illuminate a worksite while not being in the way of workers or equipment. They should also be situated where they do not cause a distraction to any oncoming motorists if the work is happening roadside.
Before erecting light towers, it is always a good idea to check on any local bylaws or regulations on using such equipment.
