2021 NATIONAL WORK ZONE AWARENESS WEEK

Perry Engineering participated in the annual National Work Zone Awareness Week with a safety stand-down for each of our crews. Highway work zones are potentially very dangerous places due to the congested work environment with workers and heavy machinery working side-by-side and high-speed traffic passing just a few feet away. Heavy equipment and traffic moving all around you, noise, heat and fatigue all combine to make this a potentially deadly scenario. Struck by hazards are one of the number one causes of fatalities for construction workers. Our safety stand-downs reminded workers of the hazards and safety controls we must use to make highway work zones safer for both the workers and the motorists.
