Alternate description

Work Zones

Highway repair and construction are a major source of contracts and work for LIUNA signatory employers and Laborers. Unfortunately, highway work zones are among the most dangerous worksites in the construction industry.

Improving work zone safety is an important focus of the work of the Occupational Safety and Health Division. In this, the Fund works in partnership with other organizations with a stake in work zone safety.

One key partnership consists of the LHSFNA plus the LIUNA Training and Education Fund, the American Road & Transportation Builders’ Association (ARTBA), the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Texas Transportation Institute and CNA Insurance.  With a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) grant, the partners are expanding the content of the innovative Roadway Safety Program — an award-winning, multimedia, English, Spanish and Portuguese review of the major hazards and worker protections in road construction.  The partnership is also implementing plans to extend roadway safety training across the country.

Unfortunately, work zone fatalities continue to rise. Necessarily, therefore, the Fund continues to seek remedies that will protect the lives of workers and the driving public.
