Work Zone Safety Grant Training

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 awarded ATSSA multi-year grants in 2006, 2011, 2013 and 2016 to provide roadway safety training nationwide for workers and others who make their livelihood on America's roadways. Thanks to these training grants, approximately 80,000 workers have participated 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.
