On a daily basis, municipal and public works employees report to the streets to maintain our country’s critical infrastructure. In the course of doing their jobs, they contend with a variety of traffic risks. In observance of National Traffic Incident Response Week, Envirosight is offering a FREE Traffic Safety poster that illustrates steps sewer inspection crews and other municipal workers can take to ensure their own safety while working in traffic.
The Transportation Incident Management Network (TIM) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has designated November 13-19, 2017 as National Traffic Incident Response Week. Every year hundreds are struck and either injured or killed while working around traffic.
The goal of National Traffic Incident Response Week is two-fold:
- Alert drivers to the dangers of distracted driving and what they should do when approaching an emergency, law enforcement, towing or utility vehicle on the road, and
- Educate workers on steps they can take to ensure their own safety when deployed on roads and highways.
