The Traffic Management Association of Australia (TMAA) is unveiling today the Australian Work Zone Memorial to pay tribute to Australian road workers who have lost their lives while carrying out their duties in active worksites. By unveiling the memorial as part of the annual Road Worker Day of Remembrance on November 9, TMAA hopes to encourage the industry and our community to consider the human cost of work zone incidents.
“While the Memorial contains the names of three traffic controllers today, we know that the list will inevitably get longer. This motivates us at TMAA to do everything we can to improve the safety of our colleagues on the road,” said Andrew White President of TMAA.
“Everyone has a right to get home safe to their loved ones, every day, no exceptions. We all need to make sure that we drive so that others survive. This includes obeying road rules and not speeding in work zones,” said Peter Frazer OAM President of SARAH Group.
More information about the Australian Work Zone Memorial and how to submit names for inclusion is available on TMAA’s website at https://lnkd.in/gD-akXzZ.
