In the construction business, visibility and safety go hand-in-hand. Knowing how to keep construction sites bright and safe is paramount for nighttime operations and work in poor lighting conditions. Proper lighting can also provide valuable security benefits, as the illumination deters thieves who target unoccupied job sites at night.
The right lighting is essential for meeting today's increasingly stringent safety guidelines. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and each state's Department of Transportation (DOT) implement specific lighting standards for nighttime illumination at job sites. You must choose high-quality lighting equipment and place them correctly to ensure compliance and avoid costly fines and penalties.
If you're looking to light up a job site, you have plenty of lighting choices:

Besides offering the best lighting for construction sites, we'll provide the expertise to help you use the equipment properly. Consider the following tips to ensure the safe operation of your light tower rentals:
For many construction operations, renting offers the most convenient and cost-effective solution for acquiring lighting. For example, if your company only engages in nighttime jobs occasionally, renting allows you to pay for lights only when you need them. And when you consider the differences in visibility conditions from one site to the next, using rentals makes it easier to choose specific equipment that matches a project's unique lighting requirements.
The Cat Rental Store offers late-model lighting towers that receive regular maintenance and undergo a thorough inspection to ensure they're safe and ready to use. We'll help you select the right products that will meet your unique nighttime job site requirements. We'll also provide timely on-site maintenance and repair services.
Our team will work with you to set up a flexible rental agreement that fits your usage and budgetary requirements, and we can even train your workers to make sure they can operate the equipment efficiently and safely.
