BACK TO YOU: DON HURST
With the return to school this week, we want to remind drivers to not only slow down in construction zones, but also in school zones.
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
When driving, remember to remain alert and look out for workers and the public. For any questions regarding working in or around school zones, please contact your regional WORKSAFELY® advisor.
