  • Description:
    Workers on roadway construction sites face the risk of death or serious in- jury from passing motorists, construction vehicles and equipment. From 1992–2000 there were 910 worker fatalities in work zones, and over 90 per-cent of these deaths involved a motor vehicle, a piece of construction equipment, or both. Workers on foot accounted for more than 500 of these work zone deaths. niosh hosted a 3-day workshop that brought together 60 key stakeholders from government agencies, labor unions, and private employers to discuss measures to reduce worker injuries from vehicles and equipment. Researchers analyzed injury data, reviewed scientific literature, and developed “white papers” to focus discussion at the workshop. niosh then compiled research results and workshop participant input into a highway work zone safety guide. insightsconstruction.pdf
