Work zones are responsible for over 130 injuries, one fatality, and 10 percent of all congestion each day. One option for addressing these issues is to implement Smarter Work Zones (SWZs). SWZs utilize innovative strategies to better coordinate construction projects and/or deploy innovative technology applications to dynamically manage and minimize work zone safety and mobility impacts.
Thanks to Mike Bracken and Chad Pendley from ODOT for their wonderful presentation before the EDC Exchange webinar!
The above link is the video that we showed to everyone at the Oklahoma LTAP Motor Grader Operator Training in Choctaw. It may take several minutes to download and view this video if you have slower internet speeds, but it will be worth the wait. This training was a (3) three-day hands-on workshop which covered motor grader safety, maintenance inspections, and basic road maintenance techniques. Students spendt time both in the classroom and on a Caterpillar, John Deere, Case motor grader practicing what they have learned. Professional instructors representing the equipment manufactures were available in the class and in the feild to provide help and suggestions for improving the operator's skills.
This is a FHWA Every Day Counts Innovation that will help Oklahomas manage traffic mishaps. As a public safety discipline TIM builds its foundation on effective interagency collaboration, understanding and cooperation. Well-conceived TIM strategies and policies proactively
•Law enforcement (C.L.E.E.T Credit Approved)
•Emergency medical services
•Public works
•Haz-mat disciplines
By working towards an enhanced level of interagency coordination, collaboration and communication all response agencies who engage in Traffic Incident Management activities can leverage their collective resources, using these to advance the National Unified Goal (NUG) for TIM;
•Responder Safety,
•Safe, Quick Clearance,
•Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communications
