The 2021 SAFE Roads campaign officially launched on May 18, reminding motorists to lower their speed, pay attention, and drive with extra caution as the summer construction season brings more workers to Manitoba roadways.
« The SAFE Roads campaign is not only an important workplace injury prevention and awareness initiative, it’s a means to help workers be safe while they are on the job,” said Ron Schuler, Minister of Infrastructure. « As this campaign highlights, we all have the right to a safe workplace, especially our province’s construction workers, firefighters, police officers, paramedics and utility workers working on or alongside the road. »
