Basics of accident prevention on the construction site

Accidents on construction sites can be a real danger not only to workers, but also to people and cars passing by the site. However, there are some basic tips that workers and bystanders should know to keep themselves safe while working.

If you drive, a good way to avoid problems with construction sites, including annoying delays or long stops, is to avoid these areas in the first place. Before you leave for work, turn on the local TV news or check their mobile app for a traffic report. Most traffic reports include any news of closures, detours or construction-related delays. When you’re in your car, also check your local news radio station for their alerts. When passing near a construction zone, be sure to look out for any barricades, warning lights or warning signs ahead and adjust your speed accordingly. Also be aware of any merging lanes, many times the lane will be closed for road repairs or construction.

Barricades and scaffolding are two things you should also be aware of. You should never attempt to climb or climb scaffolding or walk over or around barricades. There’s a reason they’re there to keep you away from potentially dangerous areas. Many work sites are abandoned at night or on weekends, remember to stay away from work sites during these hours and make sure you do not enter restricted areas. Warning lights and signals are often used around work sites, pay attention to them. A great example of a warning light is a barricade light. Barricade lights are simply standard barricades with lights mounted on them. These lights can be powered by electricity, but they can also be solar powered so they can work in areas that may not yet have electricity or may not have electricity near them. Barricades and barricade lights are ideal for keeping people out of areas or roads they shouldn’t be on. They work in different ways.

Remember, if you see something that may be a safety violation or just looks dangerous to you, report it to the appropriate authorities.
