The Roadside Maintenance Safety workshop is designed to cover all of the key safety guidelines and procedures related to the most common activities workers perform while on or near the roadway. We aim to teach workers and their supervisors how the keep themselves and their co-workers safe while working in often very hazardous situations. From temporary traffic control and flagging operations to working with heavy equipment, mowing & maintenance of rights of way and roadside excavating and trench safety – we cover it all.
