National Work Zone Awareness Week

National Work Zone Awareness Week

National Work Zone Awareness Week (NZWAW) kicks off Monday, April 20, 2020!

National Work Zone Awareness Week raises public awareness for the risk of worker injury at construction zones.  Motorists are encouraged to slow to posted speed limits, eliminate distractions while driving, and be watchful for roadway workers and their equipment.  This year’s theme is, Safe Work Zones for All: Protect workers. Protect road users.

Every day, Ohio Cat employees, customers, and vendors work in, and around, job site work zones.  Join us in supporting National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) by participating in the following events:
