National Work Zone Awareness Week April 17-21, 2023
National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) has been successful in spreading awareness for work zone safety across the country because of participation from organizations and individuals just like you. Hundreds of companies and individuals reach out to ATSSA on social media each year using #NWZAW.
Everyone plays a role in work zone safety. NWZAW highlights the deadly dangers of inattention at highway work areas. The 2023 weeklong commemoration included:
- Work Zone Safety Training Day – April 17
- National kickoff event – April 18
- Go Orange Day – April 19
- Social media storm – April 20
- Moment of Silence – April 21
The moment of silence was started in 2022 to remember the men and women whose lives were lost in a work zone incident. Learn more on how you can participate and make your voice count on the importance of work zone safety.
