Talking Safety for National Work Zone Awareness Week 2023

For National Work Zone Awareness Week, we interviewed safety managers from across the region about how we all can make road construction safer.

Alex Hernandez, Safety Manager at Gulf Coast, tells us the most important tips she gives everyone on a work site. Whether it’s someone’s first day on the job or they’ve spent decades in the field, safety must always be the priority.

Omar Hernandez, Safety Manager at Texas Materials, reminds everyone that we all have a part to play in keeping each other safe. Slow down around work zones. Lives depend on it.

Chris Watts, safety manager at TexasBit, explains how you can be more vigilant when driving around work zones. National Work Zone Awareness Week is an important reminder that we all need to do our part to keep those who build our roads safe.

“Everybody wants to be able to go back home to their families.” Texas Material Group’s Safety Director, Ligia Pascual, explains what National Work Zone Awareness Week means to our companies.
