Webinar: The New ANSI A10.47 Standard (Work Zone Safety for Highway Construction)
On February 24, 2010, a new ANSI standard on “Work Zone Safety for Highway Construction” became effective in the United States. This comprehensive standard covers practices including Flagger Safety, Runover/Backover Prevention, Equipment Operator Safety, Illumination, Personal Protective Equipment, and much, much more.
On April 21, 2010, the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse hosted a one-hour webinar on the new ANSI/ASSE A10.47 American National Standard.
Scott Schneider, director of safety for the Laborers’ Health and Safety Fund of North America and chairman of the work group that developed the standard, provided a detailed overview and took questions at the end of his presentation.
