FHWA Courses

The ARTBA Work Zone Safety Consortium Online Learning System was created to provide free training and education to the transportation construction community. The consortium, funded by an FHWA grant, brought together leaders in government, labor and industry to determine the future in training transportation industry workers.

Course Details

Quantity:

Based on a review of the most common falling hazards that occur in roadway construction projects, learn how to build an extensive fall training program comprised of fall prevention plans, fall protection plans, and fall a rescue plan.

 

Speed Management BETA
$0.00

Course Details

Quantity:

Reducing the speed of traffic moving through work zones improves the safety of both workers and motorists. However, motorists generally do not slow down when they do not recognize the work zone as a hazard. This course provides guidance to the highway construction industry on how to set speed limits and manage speeds in work zones to get the greatest compliance from motorists, resulting in more safety for all.

 

Temporary Traffic Control Devices BETA
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

When there are disruptions in the normal flow of traffic for roadwork, a temporary traffic control plan (TTCP) is necessary to keep traffic moving, and to protect workers and roadway users. Each TTCP uses equipment called temporary traffic control devices to safely guide traffic through a work zone. This course describes the different types of temporary traffic control devices and how to deploy and maintain them.

 

Work Zone Access and Egress BETA
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

One of the most dangerous places for work zone accidents are the access and egress points of a transportation construction site. This course provides information for transportation agencies and road contractors on planning access and egress points within a work zone to mitigate the risks to workers and the motoring public from construction vehicles entering and exiting the work space.

 

Work Zone Safety for Motorcycles and Bicycles BETA
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

Two-wheel vehicles have specific vulnerabilities in work zones. Unlike cars and trucks, riders are subject to roadside debris and tipping hazards from uneven ground. The detailed and technical information provided to transportation agencies and road contractors in this course will help them design and operate work zones to reduce the risk of motorcycle and bicycle accidents.

 

Work Zone Strategies for Improving Large Truck Safety BETA
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

Almost one-fourth of all fatal work zone crashes nationally involve large trucks and large trucks are overrepresented in rear-end collisions and sideswipe crashes at work zones. This course provides detailed and technical information for transportation agencies and road contractors to help design and operate work zones to maintain the efficient movement of large freight transportation vehicles within the restricted right-of-way space, and to ensure that employees can work safely within work zones.

 

Working at Night BETA
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

Scheduling transportation construction at night can reduce the impact of restricted travel lanes during rush hour and normal daytime business operations. However, night work has its own set of hazards that must be factored into any work plan. Learn about the unique hazards of night work and how to minimize the work zone risks to motorists and workers.

 

Working Outdoors BETA
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

Working outdoors presents many different hazards for road and transportation construction workers. Learn how to mitigate risks from environmental and weather conditions as well as unplanned exposure to dangerous insects, animals, and plants.

 

Reducing Risks to Motorcycles in Work Zones
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

All types of vehicles are impacted by temporary changes to the roadway in work zones.  However, temporary work zone conditions that affect tire traction, balance, stability, or steering patterns may be more problematic for motorcycle riders because they travel on just two wheels, and can contribute to increased crash risk. This course describes strategies that work zone engineers and project managers can use to reduce risks to motorcycles in work zones located in Texas.

 

Portable Changeable Message Signs BETA
$0.00
Add to Cart
Course Details

Quantity:

A PCMS can provide motorists with timely warnings, guidance, or notification of approaching roadway conditions and is a proven and effective tool in a variety of temporary traffic control conditions. Learn about how to craft early warning, advisory, and alternative routing messages as well as how to place and maintain portable changeable message signs.
