Who keeps roads safe in the Tri-State area during construction or lane closures? This hard work usually falls to the crews seen on the side of the road during all times of night and day. New Jersey alone has 85,557 miles of roads alone, many which need service and maintenance every year. While these roads are being serviced, Traffic Safety Service (TSS) is also hard at work keeping workers, pedestrians, and drivers safe. While the task of road safety may look simple to outsiders, the truth is that roads stay safe only because there are highly trained crews hard at work 365 days a year. Part of this effort includes regular safety training and yearly participation in “Safety Day” in conjunction with the Associated Construction Contractors of New Jersey (ACCNJ). TSS is proud to employ some of the most trained and qualified Traffic Control Technicians in the Tri-State area and has been committed to making people, roads and communities safer since 1971.
Traffic control cannot take place without strong safety practices and these practices are a part of each and every road construction plan. At TSS safety is not only a job function; it’s an important part of the company’s everyday culture. Many employees and all lane personnel celebrated “Safety Day” as a part of their monthly safety meeting. Workers not only learned about keeping themselves safe, they were also treated to a lunch and tailgate-style celebration of all the hard work they accomplish every day.
Safety Day is a part of a much larger celebration designed to refocus the attention of workers on key elements of staying safe while on the job. It’s also an opportunity to thank them for their commitment to safety.
Every day, teams from Traffic Safety Service work hard to keep the communities in the Tri-State area safe while they’re on the road, at work, and at play. There’s always room for improvement, however, especially when TSS’s dedicated teams are out there working 24-7, year-round. TSS also takes the time to offer periodic training and provide refreshers on safety while still meeting the service demands of their customers and the public. Monthly safety meetings are essential to keeping this culture of safety in the forefront of every worker’s mind. TSS knows that the best way to keep the public safe is by keeping workers safe, too.
Traffic Safety Service works hard to make sure that roads, lanes, and pedestrian traffic stay safe 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no matter if it is on a highway or at an event such as a concert or parade. This work takes place no matter what is going on with weather or road conditions. They look forward to continuing the tradition of hard work with a focus on service and safety every day of the year. They are also happy to answer any questions from any businesses or members of the community.
