‘Safety Supports’ webinar set for June 7

Registration is open for ATSSA’s third Worker Safety Webinar

Every organization wants to avoid worker injuries but ignoring the possibility is an unwise approach.

ATSSA’s Training Department and the Roadway Worker Protection Council present the third of five Worker Safety Webinars on June 7 at 2 p.m. The June webinar covers “Safety Supports,” which addresses how to assist your team effectively after a workplace incident.

Alex Kelly, CEO of SALT and Company, leads each of the Worker Safety Webinars, all of which are free for members and held from 2-3 p.m. E.T. Prior to starting SALT, Kelly directed Canada’s first Vision Zero Advocate Institute, which is dedicated to supporting municipalities and businesses in the adoption of evidence-based road safety programming.

“Since 2021, ATSSA and its members have expanded their emphasis on roadway worker safety by forming the Roadway Worker Protection Council and taking coordinated steps to be proactive in protecting workers and being prepared in case tragedy strikes,” said ATSSA Vice President of Education and Technical Services Donna Clark. “This Worker Safety Webinar series is one way we are helping our members be prepared in case an incident occurs.”

All webinars are recorded. Recordings of the first two sessions—Road Safety 101 and Effective Incident Response—are available now.

The other remaining webinars this year include:

  • Sept. 13Creating a Safety Culture: Learn how to create a strong safety culture within your organization. Find out how to blend industry best practices and behavioral psychology to support behavior change within your organization. 
  • Dec. 6Sharing Safety: Marketing and Partnerships to Create Safer Streets:  Participants will learn how to tell compelling stories about the work they are doing and leverage partnerships to increase awareness of roadway workers and roadway projects. 

Registration is now open for the June 7 webinar on “Safety Supports."
