Ensuring that you and others on site stay visible to mobile equipment can significantly reduce accidents on the job site. Blind spots, weather conditions, time of day, and large obstacles can all reduce visibility for equipment operators and pedestrians. Follow these best practices for improving visibility on or around mobile equipment. Wear high-visibility or high viz reflective safety vests. Keep windows clean and undamaged, wiper blades maintained, windshield defrosters operational, and mirrors properly adjusted. Add or enlarge mirrors to vehicles as needed. Mount stationary mirrors at areas of restricted visibility. Use headlights, fog lights, and additional vehicle lights when necessary. Use whip antenna flags or strobe lights to increase visibility on smaller vehicles. And use fixed or portable light plants at loading or dump points as needed.
