In light of National Work Zone Awareness Week, we found it pertinent to address the proper procedure for redirecting traffic and utilizing proper signage in work zones. Due to the many dangers on the road, and especially on highways, orange cones are simply not enough.
Many workers and industries benefit from proper education on work zone demarcation. These include emergency responders, cleanup crews, demolition crews, construction workers, and utility workers. Between 2011 and 2016, 532 workers were killed at road construction sites.
