Do you “invest” in safety?


Work zone safety awareness photo frameYou know we’re in Iowa when we move right from winter to construction. In an effort to keep everyone safer in work zones, we’ll be sharing photos on social media for National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 9-13.

Similar to what we did last year when employees donned orange to promote work zone safety, we’re asking all Iowa DOT employees who have an interest to snap a photo of individuals or groups wearing safety vests. Send the photo to During Work Zone Awareness week, look for your photo, inserted into the “Invested in Safety” photo frame on the Iowa DOT’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts and on the Zero Fatalities Facebook and Twitter feeds. Feel free to encourage other highway professionals or those interested in highway safety to join the fun by posting their own photos in safety vests on social media and using the hashtag #investedinsafety

Thanks in advance for your participation and let’s make this “investment” count!
