National Work Zone Safety Week - April 2-6

It's that time of the year again ... yep, National Work Zone Safety Week is next week (April 2-6).

On this blog, that's an important week.

As someone who works for a highway construction general contractor, I'd like to ask all of you to put safety first at all times when driving, but to pay extra attention in those work zones.

While my company has been fortunate to have had zero injuries or fatalities due to work zone incidents, U.S. Group is the exception to the rule in that regard. Having had a couple of near misses myself while on job sites, I know just how risky it is.

Keep in mind that when workers can work safer and therefore with more confidence, they work faster. That means they can open those roads up sooner. So, please help us help you.

There's even a Work Zone Safety coloring book you can download for hours of coloring fun. West and Mike ought to enjoy that.

    This is wise and much-needed advice. I live in Flori-DUH, and the way people drive here-- even where road work is going on-- is unreal.

    BTW, it's great to meet another Byzantine Catholic!

    Safety is important. I do not know how those guys do it in all that traffic.

    We hear that Jean Toal's been at it again. Thank the Lord it wasn't in or near a work zone.
