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