Washington – The Transportation Research Board recently published a series of videos highlighting a National Cooperative Highway Research Program analysis of highway worker safety.
Oregon State University College of Engineering faculty members John Gambatese and David Hurwitz examined safety measures and data sources used by state departments of transportation and explored findings for the following research questions:
- How do state DOTs respond when an incident with a highway worker occurs on a worksite?
- What is the current state of practice for using data to develop, implement and evaluate state DOT worker safety programs?
- How does the size and scope of a state DOT influence the agency’s highway worker health and safety programs?
