This is National Work Zone Awareness Week




By RENAISSANCE ALLIANCE

Highway road construction zones are a dangerous place, an area where accidents are likely to happen. Workers perform their jobs in a high-risk environment because several tons of metal cars drive them all over the entire shift. But despite the traffic workers' vulnerability, drivers are the most common mortality in collisions in the work zone. Between 201

6 and 2017, fatal accidents in work zones increased by 3 percent, while fatal accidents outside work zones decreased by 1.5 percent.

Working zones are a very dangerous and unpredictable environment for drivers who encounter narrow paths, sudden stops and traffic pattern shifts. Work vehicles can enter and exit. Normal road markings can be prevented, replaced by unknown signage. Paved shoulders are not in place.

This week marks the National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 8-12 – a campaign to raise awareness of the risks for workers and the public, and to offer a reminder to "run as you work here" around security zones for everyone .

Here are infographic tips from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration – copy them and share them on social media. .
