ConstSafetyThere are over 85,000 crashes in work zones per year. Of that number, over 800 are fatalities. We at MCR Safety want you to be aware of some simple rules to follow:

1) Make sure your safety vest is compliant with local and national regulations (such as ANSI/ISEA 107-2010)

2) Properly place traffic barrels and signs according to your specific hazard. Make sure you are familiar with local requirements.

3) Understand the latest MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices)
