Pam 0 2530 Article rating: No rating

ATSSA’s Annual Report for 2021 is now available. This year’s theme is “Resilience & Records” and lays out the many achievements that took place across the Association in a year that posed significant challenges for our members such as supply chain disruptions and a nationwide worker shortage.

The report opens with a letter from President & CEO Stacy Tetschner who touches on issues from passage of the bipartisan infrastructure package to the creation of a Roadway Worker Protection Council, which emerged from the 2021 Convention & Traffic Expo.

The report also includes a list of company members that joined ATSSA in the last year, a review of updates to ATSSA’s training options and insights gained from a member survey commissioned in 2021 as well as other highlights from the past year.

ATSSA’s 52nd Annual Convention & Traffic Expo officially launches two new association councils—the Roadway Worker Protection Council and Women in Roadway Safety Council.

The Roadway Worker Protection Council evolved from the Roadway Worker Protection Summit held as part of ATSSA’s 2021 Annual Convention & Traffic Expo.

Members who lost an employee as a result of a work zone incident recognized the value of creating resources to help guide others through the process if a tragedy befalls their company. They also recognized the need for greater focus on creating a culture of safety to prevent injuries and deaths.

The Women in Roadway Safety Council held an organizational meeting at ATSSA’s Midyear Meeting in August. ATSSA President & CEO Stacy Tetschner originated the idea for that council with the aim of formalizing a way for women to network, learn from one another and develop leadership skills in the male-dominated roadway worker infrastructure industry.
