CAWP is partnering with PennDOT, the PA Turnpike Commission and industry partners in calling for a Safety Stand-Down on Wednesday, September 15. The event will call upon the industry to Stop, Pause, and Talk about ways to prevent accidents on the job site.

As part of this year’s event, we are also including the motoring public in our stand-down because we recognize that when we work together, we are all safer. We will call on the general public to SLOW DOWN in work zones and observe the posted speed limits.

Additionally, we have established a store where you can help promote the event with promotional items such as tee-shirts, hard hat stickers and/or vehicle magnets. If you are interested in purchasing promotional items, please note that orders must be completed by August 23.

Finally, you can help promote the Safety Stand-Down on social media with the hashtag #SaferTogetherPA. Use this hashtag to promote the event leading up to September 15 and to share images of your participation during the event.

CAWP Promotes Work Zone Safety Stand-Down at Media Event

Thursday, August 12, 2021

When highway workers and the traveling public work together, we are all safer. That’s why this year we’re asking the industry to Stand-Down and the public to Slow Down and take a moment on September 15 to think about work zone safety.



Schedule Time to Pause Work & Stand-Down on September 15.

Additional Resources to assist you with your Stand-Down can be found below.


Encourage Employees to Learn About the Introduction to Temporary Traffic Control Safety

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has established a Temporary Traffic Control Safety Training Program (TTCSTP) to improve safety of both workers and the traveling public while maintaining mobility within Pennsylvania’s work zones. With a multitude of agencies and organizations involved with Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) throughout the Commonwealth, it is critical that a comprehensive training program be followed to ensure a safe, efficient, and consistent work zone environment for workers and the traveling public.
