Construction work in school zones


This week marks a return to school across the province. It’s important to remember to slow down, not only in construction zones but also in school zones.

Important things to be mindful of when working in or near school zones:

  • Reduced speed limits to 30km/h from 7 a.m. through to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday
  • Increased pedestrian and vehicle traffic at pickup and drop off times
  • Sporting and after-school events, even after the school day
  • Having appropriate barriers and signage to direct pedestrian and vehicle traffic

Remember to remain alert and look out for fellow workers and the public. For any questions regarding working in or around school zones, please contact your regional WORKSAFELY® advisor.
