2019 Annual Work Zone Safety Conference
- April 5
- 7:30 am–2:30 pm
The New Jersey Work Zone Safety Conference promotes work zone safety awareness in local and state roadways for a multi-disciplinary audience of construction, engineering, public safety, and maintenance and operations personnel.
This year’s event will feature a presentation on OSHA compliance for work zone safety inspections; an in-depth review of personal protective equipment compliant and noncompliant work zone safety vests, including the most recent revisions by the ANSI; and a segment on data-driven decision making for smarter work zones. The keynote presentation will be delivered by a retired Pennsylvania State Police Trooper who survived a horrific struck-by crash. In his presentation, he will highlight the dangers that all road workers are exposed to on a daily basis. The conference will conclude with an afternoon presentation that examines the use of drones in work zones and how this technology can increase safety when engaged in road work projects.
As part of the program, the New Jersey Work Zone Safety Excellence Awards will be presented to recognize inspiring efforts of individuals, companies and roadway agencies that have demonstrated effective temporary traffic control in planned work zones on New Jersey roadways.
