Roadway Worker Protection Council Chair Doug Dolinar told Roadway Safety magazine it’s time for a “paradigm shift” in how the industry looks at worker safety.

The Council spent the past year laser-focused on that issue, producing a Worker Protection Toolkit that provides members aids for that effort. Details on the toolkit—including checklists to help in case of an incident and a training guide aimed at prevention—are included in the latest issue of Roadway Safety magazine now available online.

The Spring Issue also includes:

  • Work Zones Must Command Respect: DOTs offering options for stemming fatalities
  • Talking Tech: Collaboration among road operators, automakers and technology companies will be critical to moving connected vehicles forward
  • A feature on political newcomers creating a need for member outreach
  • An ATSS Foundation spotlight on scholarship recipient Megan Pirelli A conversation with Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Michael Smith.

Convention Extra  is packed with:

  • Images from this year’s record-breaking Convention & Traffic Expo in Phoenix where roadway safety and innovation intersected
  • Tips from keynote speaker Scott Wozniak for getting employees firing on all cylinders
  • Details on three people honored with this year’s Industry Achievement Award, National Safety Award and Mark of Excellence Award
  • A taste of the industry’s future through the Traffic Control Device Student Challenge and Innovation Awards
  • Fun and inspiration from The ATSS Foundation events.

Read it all in Roadway Safety, the flagship publication of the American Traffic Safety Services Association.
