National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 20th-24th, calls for Safe Work Zones for All: Protect workers. Protect road users.
Boxley’s number one priority is safety. As an essential business, we have had to adjust our daily business routines while maintaining the safety and wellbeing of employees and our community. National Work Zone Awareness Week is more important than ever this year to underscore the importance of safety.
We’re proud that Work Zone Awareness Week was started right here in Virginia by VDOT’s Bristol District in 1997 to promote safe work zones for all. Although many live events supporting Work Zone Awareness Week got canceled this year, there are many ways we can participate virtually.
To kick off the week, join the first national virtual “Stand-Down to Prevent Struck-By Incidents” on April 20th, 2:00 PM EST. Register here to see what you can do to work safely and prevent struck-by incidents in work zones. Also, be on the lookout for safety awareness information on Boxley’s Facebook page.
