Every year, workers in Ontario are injured or killed as a result of traffic-related incidents while performing work in and around public roadways. While the Regulations for Construction Projects under the Occupational Health and Safety Act require employers to have a traffic protection plan in place to ensure that workers are protected, safe driving in work zones is a shared responsibility.

Drivers must do their part by adhering to speed limits, staying alert, and following the guidance of work zone signs. Together, we can ensure the safety of workers and drivers alike. 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.
