We wrote last week about ROADWAY SAFETY+, and just in time for the new version 11.0. The Roadway Safety Program provides two levels of instructional modules: Basic Awareness modules presenting an overview of common hazards in highway and road construction and simple prevention measures and Advanced Modules for presentation to supervisors, managers, and others responsible for work zone design, set up, and control. RSP is designed for use by supervisory personnel with safety and health experience or by safety and health personnel to orient new workers as they arrive on the jobsite. Check out the video here.
Also of note, the National Work Zone Awareness Week Committee is actively seeking State Applications to Hold its 2014 Kickoff Event. The NWZAW Executive Committee is expected to announce the host state during the April 2013 kick-off event in Washington, D.C.
