TRB Webinar: How DOTs Manage to Keep Maintenance Workers Safe
Maintenance and other field workers are exposed to hazards that require a higher level of management than traditional office-based positions within state departments of transportation (DOTs). TRB hosted a webinar that explored the national state of practice and trends on the use of safety management systems to manage maintenance worker safety. Presenters provided a perspective from a national DOT leader in the area of safety and practices for managing heat stress.
This webinar is based on NCHRP Synthesis 591: Use of Safety Management Systems in Managing Highway Maintenance Worker Safety.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s National Highway Cooperative Research Program.
