Cone Zone Season Has Arrived

Do your workers understand and follow safe work procedures while working on or beside the road? It is your legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of your workers and your contractors working in a Cone Zone. As an employer you are required to do the following:

  • Ensure your workers know the hazards related to working at the roadside.
  • Provide workers with the training, equipment, and resources to keep themselves safe.
  • Ensure employees who drive for work know how to safely drive through potential hazards in roadside work zones.
  • Follow the safety requirements set out in the Workers Compensation Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, and the 2020 Traffic Management Manual for Work on Roadways.

Download the free Roadside Safety Tool Kit for employers to help improve the safety of your roadside workers.

Workers can also access tools and resources and the online Roadside Safety Quiz that provide information on how to stay safe when working in roadside Cone Zones.
