Apparatus and AttitudesAbstract:
The writer discusses measures that can be taken to reduce vehicle risk in roadway construction zones. In 1998, the National Safety Council formed a strategic alliance with the American Road and Transportation Builders Association to address these safety issues. Work zone safety can be enhanced by the use of devices such as signage, barricades, cones, concrete dividers, alarm systems, and more. Workers must constantly assess their risks and make the maximum effort to stay alert to hazards.
