Tuesday, April 21 (10-10:30 a.m.): Navigating the Work Zone Safely and Successfully. Work zones have become increasingly dangerous places for both workers and drivers. Research shows increased speed limits impatient drivers and widespread traffic congestion has contributed to a rise in work zone injuries and fatalities. Jerry Ullman, regents fellow and manager of the Work Zones and Dynamic Message Signs Program at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, will discuss the environment drivers have to navigate in work zones and the importance of speed and safety. He also will provide safety tips for drivers to use as extra caution in work zones. Lisa Robinson, senior program manager with the National Safety Council, will join this session for a Q&A near its completion.
Wednesday, May 27 (10-10:30 a.m.): Securing Your Load: Preventing Road Hazards and Liability. The sliding weight of a loose load can cause a tip-over event on the road. Items that are not tied down can turn into flying projectiles. In either case, there is the potential for road users to sustain injuries. Using the proper load-securing devices and using them correctly is good for business and good for the safety of all motorists. Danny Thomas, founder of Accurate Safety Compliance, and Lisa Robinson, senior program manager with the National Safety Council, will discuss why securing loads is important for employers. The two will provide best-practice solutions to prevent crashes and cut costs associated with destruction of property.
