Construction Accident Attorney Protects Night-Shift Workers’ Rights
Construction work is a risky job. One wrong step and the worker could find himself in a serious—even fatal—accident. The risks of construction work are even more amplified when workers have to work at night when lighting and visibility are poor, among other negative elements. Risk Factors There are many factors that add to the risks of working at night, one of which is poor lighting. Workers would have to rely on artificial light in order to see properly. A construction site at night must be well lit to provide visibility, but the lights should not be too bright lest they create glare that could hamper the workers’ vision, as well as that of any driver in the area. Emergency exits, and caution warnings must also be well lit so that workers would know where to go in case of an emergency.
