Why You Need Temporary Construction Lighting
The construction industry in Australia is ever-expanding, and it’s not showing signs of slowing down any time soon. The demand for construction and road workers to function around the clock is apparent.
To accommodate the growing industry demands, construction companies have started working through the night, but with a nighttime environment comes an increase in safety precautions. Enter RPM Hire with efficient worksite lighting solutions – but first, you have to consider how much light you will need for your project.
How to Develop a Lighting Plan
Figuring out what lighting you need circumstantially has proven to be inefficient. Every time lighting is moved to another location of the worksite, the company loses money. If the lighting is poor and deemed unsafe work must discontinue until temporary construction lighting is installed; this can cost the company thousands of dollars. Let’s discuss how you can prevent such hindrances from happening.
The answer to the problem is developing a detailed lighting plan. Sketch out a blueprint of the worksite, the layout should include what kind of work will take place on-site, equipment on-site, and the worker’s location on-site. Include any other obstructions that may cause shadowing in any areas. Developing a lighting plan will eliminate any problems arising when workers get to the job site.
It’s vital to be proactive when it comes to safety. Remember to plan for the possibility of worksite expansion and the need for portable lighting solutions opposed to stationary lighting solutions. When it comes to road works, the job can stretch hundreds of meters which portable lighting solution will be in demand. Again, if work has to grind to a halt because all contributing factors weren’t taken into consideration; time and money are wasted.
