Blog – Safety Vehicles

The vast majority of deaths that occur in bridge and road construction zones in the U.S. happen because a worker is hit by a piece of construction equipment or another vehicle. That’s why it’s critical that all vehicles used on the Selmon Extension project have safety features, including:

  • Working headlights and brake lights
  • Windshield wipers and defogging or defrosting devices
  • Audible horns
  • Back-up alarms
  • Safety glass with no distortions
  • Proper mirrors
  • Adequate seating and seat belts

Regularly inspect equipment and all the safety features to make sure everything is in good working order.
