Overhead Hazard Warning Safety Device Event

Overhead Hazard Warning Safety Device Event
Overhead Hazard Warning Safety Device Distribution Event.
Approximately 3 years ago, OCA’s Safety Committee took up the issue of hazardous conditions created when raised truck beds or equipment booms strike overhead powerlines and/or bridge structures. Many of our contractors developed their own warning devices to alert drivers and equipment operators. Some of the devices were called into question by ODOT as not being compliant when used in traffic control work zones. The Safety Committee got to work and developed a warning device that is complaint with the requirements of FHWA, ODOT, and OSHA. After several years of coordinated efforts, we now have the OVERHEAD HAZARD WARNING DEVICE. We are extremely appreciative of our friends at the Ohio Laborers Employers Cooperative Educational Trust (LECET) who agreed to fund the initial supply of the devices. We have 500 units on hand and will distribute them to OCA contractor members at our roll out safety event in the OCA parking lot on September 17th. OCA members must pre-register to indicate how many people will be attending, and how many devices you would like to have. We will distribute the devices fairly based on pre-orders from the initial stock of 500. We encourage all OCA members who want the overhead warning devices to attend the event. If you want to order the device, but cannot attend the roll out event, please register and indicate no one attending, but indicate the number of devices you would like to have. We will make sure those who could not attend receive their devices.

The event is being held in conjunction with National Construction Safety Week and will begin at 10 am with opening remarks by invited guests from ODOT, FHWA, OSHA and LECET, and OCA.

 If you have any questions about the event or the devices, please contact Mark Potnick in the OCA office.
