When working close to oncoming traffic, construction trucks, and equipment, highway and street construction workers run the risk of suffering fatal injuries as well as catastrophic nonfatal injuries. In the United States, the majority of fatalities that take place in work zones for road construction involve a worker being hit by a piece of construction machinery or another vehicle. In this line of work, a worker has an equal chance of being hit by a piece of construction machinery operating inside the work zone as by oncoming traffic.
The goal of this course is to train employers to encourage safe driving practices by informing employees about safety procedures and by establishing and upholding driver safety regulations to prevent work-related roadway crashes. It will also teach them about the hazards that may exist in road construction work zones related to either construction equipment or other vehicle.
