Work zones are a well-recognized potential hazard on our roads. They can be dangerous both for road users who have to manoeuvre through less-than-ideal road conditions, but also for those workers who build, repair, and maintain our roads, bridges, and highways. For this latter group, a road construction zone also represents their place of work.

This course is designed to equip road professionals with a theoretical and “hands on” understanding of Construction Site / Work Zone Safety Risk, including OSHA construction focus areas, regulatory compliance as well as Temporary Traffic Control Plans.

IRF Global is now recognized as an approved training provider by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), a respected professional body that provides transportation professionals with recognition, support and business insights to accelerate their careers and influence the future of the sector.
