On this episode of The Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey brings an interview from CONEXPO-CON/AGG with American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) senior vice-president of safety and education Bradley Sant.
Sant held a session at CONEXPO titled “The impact of the Infrastructure and Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) on Construction Safety” that examined how a substantial increase in construction activity will impact worksite safety, particularly given a rise in incidents even before passage of the act.
Sant also explained how every state is required in the legislation to protect vulnerable mode users such as cyclists, pedestrians or those with disabilities but stressed roadway workers are just as vulnerable to danger and far more exposed due to their continual proximity to roadways.
