We at ivalueSafety.com want to share the topic of National Work Zone Awareness Week per the following:
National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is an annual spring campaign held at the start of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. The key message is for road users to use extra caution in work zones. This year’s theme, “Work Zone Safety: Everybody’s Responsibility” reinforces the message Drive Towards Zero Crashes in and around work zones.
The nationwide safety observance, established in 1999, is set aside each year at the beginning of the busy roadway construction season to draw the motoring publics’ attention to the dangers associated with roadway work zones. The most recent federal statistics (2015) reveal 700 fatalities occur in roadway work zones from coast to coast, the majority of those victims being motorists, not the workers themselves.
