Worksite Safety Awareness Week 2018

2018 Work Zone Safety: Everybody’s Responsibility

Safety is always a major concern with any construction-related project. At Reliable Contracting, worksite safety is always our top priority. With this in mind, we are constantly striving to ensure that workers and pedestrians are always protected by best practices for safety on the job with any project. For this reason, we are proud endorsers of safe driving practices in and around road and highway zones throughout the year.

Every year, the National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week Campaign is launched across the country during the first week of April. This year, our campaign kicks off during the week of April 8th, in which we will partner with the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Transportation (MDOT SHA), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and other municipalities to promote work zone safety. The theme of our 2018 campaign is “2018 Work Zone Safety: Everybody’s Responsibility.”

We look forward to promoting our worksite safety this year and for years to come! Here is what you should know about this the 2018 worksite safety awareness week!
