AGC/OSHA Highway Work Zone Safety Training
AGC of America, supported by a Susan Harwood Federal Training Grant, developed the Highway Work Zone Safety Training
Construction workers make up approximately 4% of the country’s workforce but account for an average of 17% of all job-related fatalities each year. And according to a November 2013 report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), from 2003 – 2010, 962 workers were killed at road construction sites with 87% of the deaths being workers who were working onsite at the time of the incident. Additionally, workers were fatally struck 143 times by a vehicle or mobile equipment that was backing up. AGC of America is pleased to offer this one-day training program based on OSHA standards and best practices to answer the need for quality training within the industry.
