The American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF) is now accepting nominations for the 2014 “Roadway Work Zone Safety Awareness Awards,” which recognizes the outstanding safety efforts of both public and private-sector organizations involved in building the U.S. transportation network.
The awards recognize programs to reduce roadway work zone construction accidents, injuries, and fatalities in three categories:
Outreach Campaigns - Honors the efforts of national, state and local private sector organizations, such as construction companies, utility companies or trade associations, which promote roadway work zone safety through implementation of employee and/or public education campaigns and training programs.
Worker Training - Recognizes national, state and local training programs by public or private sector organizations aimed at creating a culture of safety or expanding safety knowledge for those who work in roadway construction zones.
Innovations in Technology - Honors manufacturers of equipment and products that use innovative technology to improve safety for motorists and workers in and around roadway work zones.
The competition is open to all interested individuals and organizations. An independent panel of judges will evaluate the entries and select winners. Winners will be recognized at a special luncheon during the ARTBA National Convention, held September 7-9, 2014 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
