ASSE Co-Sponsors April Webinar
April 8, 2010

In its ongoing efforts to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses especially with seasonal roadway construction just around the corner, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) will co-sponsor a free webinar addressing work zone safety with the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse this April 21st at 1 p.m. (EDT). This one-hour webinar will address the hazards of work zone safety, preventive efforts aimed at protecting the worker, and the new American National Standard ANSI/ASSE A10.47-2009 “Work Zone Safety for Highway Construction”.

The ASSE work zone safety standard, which became effective last February, is a comprehensive standard covering several practices including flagger safety, run over/back over prevention, equipment operator safety, illumination, personal protective equipment (PPE), and much more.

ASSE serves as the secretariat for the A10 Accredited Standards Committee on construction and demolition operations. The A10 voluntary consensus standards serve as guides to contractors, labor and equipment manufacturers in the construction and demolition industry.

The webinar will be offered free of charge. Those interested in attending can register on The National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse website.
