Can they see you?

Organisational Health & Safety

It’s the winter solstice later this week which means now and for a little while at least, daylight hours are at their shortest for the year.

This means more than at any other time of year, a lot of us go to work when it’s darker and come home when it’s darker.

We all know that visibility on the roads in low light, especially at dawn and dusk, can be poor but don’t forget that your personal visibility on the worksite is also affected for longer at this time of year.

Make sure you can be clearly seen by people, vehicles and plant from the moment you step onto the worksite…and if in doubt, make the necessary changes to ensure your safety and that of those around you.
