How To Keep Safety For The workers who work on the road construction?

The inaugural Road Worker Safety Showcase will allow visitors to see a range of new products in action, all of which help ensure operatives and engineers working on the road are kept safe.

Drivers are reminded to be extra vigilant and slow down as we enter into the months when visibility is more compromised.

WorkSafeBC data show that the number of workers who experienced a lost-time injury after being struck on the road or roadside is highest during the wetter, darker fall and winter months.

Fifteen workers were killed and another 280 missed time from work for the 10-year period from 2006 to 2015 as a result of being struck by a motor vehicle on a public road in the course of their work.

Of those workers, 146 were injured during the fall and winter months, versus 134 during the spring and summer.

“Workers who must perform their duties near traffic face the risk of being struck year-round, but especially when drivers may find it more difficult to see them,” says Mark Ordeman, WorkSafeBC industry and labour services manager.

“We ask all drivers to keep that in mind and slow down — especially as weather conditions can change quickly and deteriorate — so that all workers can return home safe each night.”

So, all the workers worked in night to keep safety first. Especially, The highway workers keep cecurity with the help of some safety products, the high visibility apparel is one of the choices.
