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.
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.
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 email@example.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.
