The first event in the Worker Safety Webinar Series is sponsored by the ATSSA Training Department and the Roadway Worker Protection Council and is free for ATSSA members. Dates haven’t been set yet for the other four seminars, which will be held in 2022. “We’re excited to be launching this series devoted to worker safety,” said ATSSA Vice President of Education & Technical Services Donna Clark. “It is part of our overall effort to be proactive in heightening attention to the issue and seeking to help our members create a culture of safety in their workplaces.” The Roadway Worker Protection Council evolved from a Roadway Worker Protection Summit held at this year’s Annual Convention & Traffic Expo. The Council’s first formal meeting will be held in February at ATSSA’s Convention & Traffic Expo in Tampa, Fla. Kelly directed Canada’s first Vision Zero Advocate Institute prior to starting her own firm. That institute supported governments and businesses in adopting evidence-based road safety programming, according to her bio. She also led road safety programming for Parachute, a national injury organization in Canada. “Road Safety 101” will provide an overview of current safety trends, technology and innovations in roadway safety. It also will include a briefing on what is happening in the larger transportation industry on topics such as autonomous vehicles, Vision Zero programming and micro-mobility. The effort is to address the scope of the issue and identify partnership opportunities. Register now for the Nov. 9 webinar, which runs from 2-3 p.m. ET.
