National Work Zone Awareness Week has been successful in spreading awareness for work zone safety across the country because of participation from organizations and individuals just like you. Hundreds of companies and individuals reach out to ATSSA on social media each year using hashtag #NWZAW.

NWZAW 2024 is April 15-19, hosted by Maryland Department of Transportation. NWZAW highlights the deadly dangers of inattention at highway work areas. The 2024 weeklong commemoration includes:

  • Work Zone Safety Training Day – April 15
  • National kickoff event – April 16
  • Go Orange Day – April 17
  • Social media storm – April 18
  • Moment of Silence – April 19. The moment of silence was started in 2022 to remember the men and women whose lives were lost in a work zone incident.

Participate and make your voice count on the importance of work zone safety.
