About Cone Zone
Our annual Cone Zone campaign is a joint provincial initiative supported by the Work Zone Safety Alliance and managed by Road Safety at Work.
It runs year round, with an emphasis on the busy spring and summer seasons for roadside work.
Our goal is to eliminate injuries, deaths, and crashes in BC work zones.
Our messages are aimed at employers, employees who work at the roadside at any time, and the general driving public. We aim to:
- Increase safe driving behaviours in roadside work zones
- Increase employer use of safer roadside work zones
- Increase worker knowledge and understanding of their rights, responsibilities, and safe roadside work zone practices
Our campaign began in 2011 when WorkSafeBC and the BCAA Road Safety Foundation started what would eventually become the Work Zone Safety Alliance.
