WORK ZONE SAFETY GRANT


Impacting the lives of road safety workers


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) takes an active role in monitoring, improving and advancing safety for work zone workers. As a trusted partner, the FHWA has awarded ATSSA multi-year grants in 2006, 2011, and 2013 to provide roadway safety training nationwide for workers and others who make their livelihood on America's roadways. Since 2006, approximately 60,000 workers have been trained in a variety of ATSSA roadway safety training courses at an extremely low cost and have also been given access to a wide range of invaluable and informative products at no cost. The benefits of Work Zone Safety Grant training include:

  • High quality education at only $25 means more employees are able to get trained
  • Employers are compliant with state or federal mandates and their employees are up-to-date on standards
  • Confidence knowing employees have been trained to set up work zones correctly
  • Free guidelines means workers are equipped with accurate and current information which can be applied on the spot

As a result of the Grant, ATSSA has developed training, including videos, podcasts, and publications to help inform workers about safety procedures and improve worker knowledge in order to avoid injury during their daily employment activities. There are three specific areas of the Grant: Area 1 covers roadway work zone worker training; the Area 2 phase developed roadway work zone safety guidelines; and Area 3 was created to provide work zone safety guidelines training.
