Ever notice that safety barricades on the highway have flashing lights to attract your eye? The same principle applies with any temporary safety situation where you need to get immediate attention from those near a possible hazard. Portable strobe lights can provide early warning to unsuspecting workers near a spill containment area, an open hatch, or even a pile of freshly broken glass. If you need to erect a safety barrier, the strobe is a good way to provide extra protection in an area where workers aren't used to having restricted movement because of a barrier or spill containment wall. The flashing light will make them stop and look twice before proceeding, whether on foot or in a vehicle.
