SCAPA and It's Members Support the 2019 National Work Zone Awareness Week!
SCAPA and its Members took to social media with pictures, posts and videos to remind the public of the importance of driving safely while in roadway work zones -- all in support of National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) April 8-12, 2019.
National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is held to bring national attention to issues in work zones.
Every year more than 700 people are killed in roadway work zones. Construction companies are dedicated to ensuring the safety of their workers and the driving public. Roadway work zones use a variety of warning systems, barriers, and other traffic controls to make sure that drivers and work zones stay separated, but it just takes a moment of distraction for an accident to happen and for lives to be changed forever.
NAPA created an amazing toolkit to use during NWZAW and year-round. The toolkit includes social media content, infographics, videos and more. Click to check out the WATCHFOR.US campaign.
This effort doesn't have to be limited to NWZAW! We should continue to remind drivers to drive safe and Watch For Us! throughout the year!
