Promoting the Cone Zone Campaign

Be a part of the 2018 Cone Zone campaign by engaging your organization, stakeholders and community. You will be contributing to a safer workplace for all roadside workers across BC. Here are a few simple things you can do to get your organization involved.

Campaign launch message to stakeholders and employees

We’ve provided a campaign launch message template that you can use as-is, or customize with your own message to send out to stakeholders and employees. Consider distributing the message the week before campaign launch date of May 14.

  1. Print out a copy of the Cone Zone poster(s). Place it in your lobby, lunchroom or other high-traffic area before the campaign launch date to help create awareness.
  2. Email a copy of the poster(s) to your employees and external stakeholders.

Roadside Safety Toolkit

Access the free online tools and resources found in the roadside safety tool kit for more information on how to work safely in roadside work zones. The focus is on short term or occasional roadside work.

Cone Zone community event

Consider creating your own Cone Zone themed event. This could range from something very simple to more complex such as:

  • Set up a booth and distribute information re: roadside worker safety at a public event in your community.
  • Create a Cone Zone themed children’s event, where kids ride their bikes around a circuit of cones in a park.
  • Set up a road rodeo where drivers are encouraged to test drive new models of cars and drive safely through a course with cones set up. This could be set up in the parking lot at your local mall and you could partner with other organizations such as a car manufacturer or local community group.
  • Create a Cone Zone themed car wash where drivers enter an area marked with cones and information is distributed re: driving safely in roadside work zones.

Share your experiences with others

We can all learn from each others successes. Please share how your organization has promoted the Cone Zone campaign and how your efforts were received by employees. Send an email to anita.deiter@roadsafetyatwork.com. We hope you’ll find these ideas useful within your organization and also encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities to share them with your stakeholders and communities.
