It’s Work Zone Awareness Week and it couldn’t come at a better time. A new study out claims that drivers are distracted more than half the time they are on the road, which doubles their risk of a car crash. There’s no doubt about it: this week is an important one to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. While awareness is critical, workers unfortunately aren’t in control of whether a driver picks up that call and takes their eyes off the road for a split second.
To help improve worker visibility (and safety), ANSI/ISEA recently updated their 107 standard. Download and read our hi-vis “bright paper” to learn more struck-by stats, how the revised guidelines of the ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 Standard helps improve worker visibility on roadways and other jobsites, and workplace best practices to keep you and your crew safe.
This week – but really every week – make a seen.
