ARTBA, Construction Industry Allies, Federal Government & Labor Groups Sign Roadway Work Zone Safety Agreement

Improving the safety of both workers and motorists in roadway construction zones are key objectives of a new alliance among the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) and its construction industry allies. Through the alliance, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Roadway Work Zone Safety and Health Partners-which include ARTBA, the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) and the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC)-will develop hazard awareness training and education programs aimed at training workers, educating the roadway construction industry, and reaching out to non-English construction workers about safe practices in roadway work zones.
