launch T 241116 (1280x960)“YOUR SPEED IS OUR SAFETY” – Slow Down for Road Workers

The road can be a workplace – just like any other.

Whether you work in a school, in an office building, or on a road, you have the right to go to work and feel safe, and not worry that at any moment you might have to drop tools and run for your life because of someone else’s selfish or careless behaviour.

Tasmania’s Civil Contractors Federation has worked together with industry, the Tasmanian Government and the Road Safety Advisory Council to develop the “Your Speed is our Safety” public awareness campaign.

We wish to ask drivers, as they approach a site under traffic management, to make good decisions to protect the road workers who build your roads.

There are a lot of road works underway, and with summer here there will only be more.

Please, plan your trip, make good decisions, be aware of the risks of construction sites, and slow down for road workers.

We would like to recognise the enthusiastic and generous support of the campaign by the following CCF Tasmania Members:
