Brazil Road Expo
Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Sao Paulo, Brazil

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Attendees will learn how to design a safe work zone and they will learn about the newest technologies for work zone safety. How to use positive protection, truck mounted attenuators, dynamic and variable message signs will be among the topics discussed.

Upon completion of the Work Zone Safety training, attendees will be aware of MUTCD recommended procedures to design safe work zones. They will be exposed to different technologies and methodologies which can be used to make work zones safer.
