Safety and Efficiency: The Hallmarks of Professional Highway Construction
Setting up and maintaining proper and sufficient traffic control is essential for any type of roadwork, whether that’s construction, repairs, or maintenance. And McClain & Co., Inc. has the services and equipment you need to provide that control.
Traffic control refers to the use of temporary traffic control devices to guide road users safely through a work zone and to protect workers. Typically, a traffic management plan is required that outlines the traffic hazards and specifies the measures to be used for traffic control.
While temporary traffic control equipment and devices are used to guide and channel traffic, the number one reason for traffic control systems is to ensure the safety of your workers in and around traffic.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides standards and guidance for the Construction Industry on the use of Signs, Signals, and Barricades, including guidelines for accident prevention signs and tags, and signaling.
These requirements are essential as highway, road, street, bridge, tunnel, utility, and other infrastructure workers are exposed to hazards from outside and inside the work zone.
OSHA states that falls, struck-by, and caught between accidents are the common hazards with this type of work. To help prevent and minimize these, OSHA, along with several states, have provided guidance for the set-up of work zone signs, barricades, flagging, etc.
There are currently 28 OSHA-approved State Plans that operate state-wide occupational safety and health programs. These State Plans are required to have standards and enforcement programs that are at least as effective as OSHA’s and often have additional or more stringent requirements.
And a critical component of compliance is using the proper traffic control safety equipment.
From Attenuator Trucks to Traffic Cones – McClain Has You Covered
Road construction and highway or bridge work zone activities often interrupt the normal flow of traffic. This requires workers to maintain traffic control for both on-site and highway vehicles. By using traffic control equipment and devices, contractors can help prevent common traffic-related hazards and keep workers, pedestrians, and drivers safe while in the work zone.
And McClain and Company has a wide range of traffic control safety equipment and devices available for your project.
An essential piece of equipment for many projects, Truck-Mounted Attenuators – or TMAs – are also known as crash cushions, impact attenuators, or crash attenuators. This truck-mounted device is designed to reduce the damage to structures, vehicles, and motorists that can result from a motor vehicle collision.
