The Night Shift: Introducing our New GO SAFE Campaign

Let’s face it: nobody likes working on a night shift. Although they are sometimes necessary, night shifts can be very difficult – especially at this time of year. It is important to prepare yourself for the physical, mental and social challenges that working at night can bring.

Over the next two months we’ll be focussing on how you can manage the range of issues that come from night work, including:

·        Tiredness and fatigue while working and driving

·        Disruption to your home life and social routines

·        Mental health issues, such as feeling alone and isolated

·        Working through difficult weather conditions

·        The need for lighting and high-visibility PPE on site

Our new poster highlights the need to “See and Be Seen”. As well as making sure that high visibility PPE is worn on site, you also need to look out for each other. Working at unsocial hours can be very lonely and isolating. If you see somebody on site who may be struggling, make some time to talk to them. Even a little bit of small talk could make a real difference.
