NATIONAL WORK ZONE AWARENESS WEEK
Observed Across The Country
National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is an annual spring campaign held at the start of construction season to encourage safe driving through highway work zones. The key message is for drivers to use extra caution in work zones. Also, learn about Go Orange Day.
Go Orange Day 2017, Wednesday, April 5
All roadway safety professionals across the country are encouraged to wear orange to proudly show their support of work zone safety.
Go Orange Day and NWZAW is an important time to show your support of the roadway safety industry, especially to the families of victims who have lost their lives in work zones.
This year for Go Orange Day, ATSSA is expanding our focus to not only photos, but also videos. ATSSA wants to see videos of you or a group wearing orange and telling us why you support Go Orange Day and NWZAW, doing something fun, safe and creative.
