Road worker safety campaign begins in Ontario
By Adnews Staff
The Ontario Road Builders' Association and construction union LIUNA Local 183 have begun an online campaign intended to raise awareness of road worker safety. The campaign, called "Safety: A Two Way Street," encourages drivers to slow down when passing through construction zones. Road workers will use Twitter and a Facebook page to share stories, family pictures and personal appeals. "By taking drivers into our lives and living rooms through Facebook, we hope they'll see we're not just part of a road crew, we've got families too," said Michael O'Brien of LIUNA Local 183. "We want to be able to thank drivers at the end of construction season for slowing down and keeping our families together."
