Operation Life Saver2019-02-19T20:55:32+00:00

https://oli.org/education-resources

At Operation Lifesaver, our top priority is to educate people on how to be safe around highway-rail grade crossings and railroad tracks.

Trains today are often bigger, faster and quieter than ever. Though diligent safety practices and engineering advancements have reduced the numbers of injuries and fatalities at highway-rail crossings, incidents resulting from rail trespass–often involving young people–remain a constant challenge. Predictions for a substantial boost in rail travel mean that in the near future there will be more trains on busier tracks, giving OL’s mission to reach kids, teens and young adults added urgency. Help us by using the appropriate K-12 lesson plan, listed below, to share important rail safety education messages with your students.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration – Tips for Traveling Safely in Work Zones2019-04-12T18:22:34+00:00

On average, over 700 fatalities occur in work zones each year. Commercial motor vehicle (CMV) and passenger vehicle drivers both need to be particularly careful while traveling through work zones. Trucks and buses have limited maneuverability and large blind spots, both of which make operating in these areas more challenging for them. In fact, large trucks are disproportionately involved in work zone crashes.

American Trucking Association Share the Road Instructional Video2019-02-19T20:55:50+00:00

Share the Road Professional Truck Drivers offer motorists unique insights into the limits of tractor-trailers and what drivers can do to safely maneuver around large vehicles on the highway.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation – Work Zone Safety Awareness2019-04-12T18:21:49+00:00

Safety Tips to Live By! Follow these tips to help keep you, other motorists and work zone employees safe:

  • Stay Alert! Dedicate your full attention to the roadway.
  • Set Aside Distractions! Avoid using mobile phones or changing radio stations while driving in the work zone.
  • Focus on Safe Driving!
  • Buckle Up! Safety belts save lives.
  • Pay Close Attention! Merge when directed, and pay attention to all signs and work zone flaggers.
  • Turn on Your Headlights! Be visible to workers and other drivers.
  • Don’t Speed! Note the posted speed limits in and around the work zone.
  • Don’t Tailgate!
  • Keep Up with the Traffic Flow!
  • Don’t Change Lanes in the Work Zone!
  • Don’t Drink and Drive! Impairment is a danger to everyone using the highways.
  • Plan Ahead! Expect delays and leave early so you can reach your destination on time.
  • Be Patient! Work zones aren’t there to inconvenience you; crews are working to improve the road to make your future drive better.
