New Jersey LTAP webinar: Work Zone Safety Awareness for Road Departments
April 22, 2020 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 am| Free
This course, similar to New Jersey’s LTAP Work Zone Safety Awareness Program, is specifically being offered to New Jersey municipal and county public works and utilities participants who require an overview of working safely in the roadway. As new or veteran employees enter or re-enter the public works profession, they are frequently required to set up short-term work zones or are assigned to long-term projects. There are no allowances for errors when working next to traffic, so it is important for personnel to have a solid understanding of work zone safety compliance with the national MUTCD standards. Also, the roles of workers and enforcement personnel at work sites, differences between NJDOT and local projects, and legal responsibilities in work zones will be addressed during this program.
The intended audience includes individuals who are performing maintenance, construction, or traffic control on municipal roadways including: public works employees, and street superintendents.
