We all know the dangers of drinking and driving. It is dangerous to be impaired by alcohol (or another substance) and operate a motor vehicle. The driver’s response time and judgment may be compromised which can result in a serious accident.

The same is true on a New Jersey construction site. Construction workers who work under the influence of alcohol can create a dangerous environment for everyone on the job. Accordingly, it is important to recognize the signs of a coworker who may be drunk, to take steps to protect yourself, and to contact a New Jersey construction accident lawyer if you’ve been hurt.

3 Signs of a Drunk Construction Worker

A construction worker may be under the influence of alcohol if you notice:

  1. Physical symptoms of drunkenness. This may include slurring words, difficulty balancing or sloppiness in work, for example.
  2. Emotional symptoms of drunkenness. This may include excessive jolliness or anger.
  3. Other evidence of alcohol use. You may, for example, notice alcohol containers with the construction worker’s belongings or smell alcohol on his breath.

If you suspect that a coworker is drunk, then it is important to safely address the issue with you supervisor or a manager on the construction site.
