SAFETY OF MAINTENANCE AND CONSTRUCTION PERSONNEL IN WORK ZONES

Twenty major problem areas were identified as most hazardous to maintenance and construction employees and workers. The more mechanical aspects of safety, such as equipment, signs, weather and design are not the most important factors; the attitude and safety consciousness of the individuals involved is probably the most critical factor affecting the success or failure of any safety program. Another important consideration is the visual impact and uniformity of alerting motorists approaching the work site. There are 101 separate recommendations in this report on safety as it relates to passing traffic. There is a need to develop a Safety Management Information System that will make available information related to maintenance and construction safety to all management levels.
