Work zones are an essential part of keeping transportation infrastructure in good repair. However, how you drive in work zones can be the difference between workers staying safe on the job or suffering an injury or being killed.

Going too fast, or driving distracted or aggressively, can cause rear-end collisions and other crashes. And, if you’re not paying attention, you could hit – or be hit – by vehicles and equipment working in the zone.

It’s critical that all road users approach work zones with caution and do their part to keep the road safe for everyone. Everyone deserves to get home safe!

IUOE Local 793 stands as a dedicated advocate for the protection of all workers involved in building and maintaining Ontario. The importance of this mission cannot be overstated, emphasizing that safety is not a matter of chance – it’s a deliberate choice that each person must make.
