Highway Worker Safety

 

AGC of America and Zurich Services Corporation developed a program designed to increase hazard awareness and demonstrate the appropriate control measures to address highway worker safety exposures.

This material is designed to assist in mitigating highway worker safety exposures by increasing awareness of the hazards and the appropriate control measures. The program focuses on preventing the leading causes of highway worker fatalities (Focus Four) and serious soft tissue injuries (Plus One).

The program consists of eight interactive modules on video and a fully customizable presentation that address street, road and highway work including:

  • Asphalt paving
  • Bridge work
  • Concrete paving
  • Demolition work
  • Traffic control
  • Earthwork and grading operations
  • Short-term and mobile operations
  • Utility and drainage work
