Thursday, March 8, 8:30–10:30 a.m.
When we were young, we were told not to play in traffic. But let’s not kid ourselves — in our industry, we make our living working in traffic.
Whether you operate a service truck, dump body, aerial lift or snowplow, it’s imperative to make distracted drivers aware of you, your work truck and your work zone. Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) developed a training session specifically for the workforce with the difficult task of working on or along America’s roads and highways. Our trainer will cover approved signage, equipment and personal protective measures that, when used correctly, send a clear and consistent message to drivers.
While we do not recommend playing in traffic, there is still a job to be done and ways to increase awareness and improve safety in the work zone.
Moderated by: Richard Domonkos, Training Manager, Indiana LTAP, Purdue University, Lyles School of Civil Engineering
Presented by: Todd Morrison, P.E., Technology Transfer Engineer, Technology Transfer/KY LTAP, University of Kentucky, Transportation Center
