The New Jersey Work Zone Safety Conference promotes work zone safety awareness on local and state roadways for a multi-disciplinary audience of construction, engineering, public safety, maintenance and operations personnel.

This year’s event will include a presentation focused on streamlining work zone safety documentation through a phone application followed by a panel discussion on how to conduct a successful preconstruction meeting. The keynote presentation will be delivered by Bradley Sant,
Professional Engineer with the American Road & Transportation Builders Association who will be speaking about the dangers of internal work zones which account for approximately 50% of all fatalities. The conference will conclude with a presentation on attenuators and the  role of police in work zones.
