National Guidelines for Work Zone Safety in Canada (2016)

National Guidelines for Work Zone Safety promotes and facilitates consistent work zone safety practices across Canada by providing information that addresses common work zone issues from human factors and safety perspectives.

The Guidelines were developed based on a comprehensive review of practices and literature, which are included as a complementary document to the Guidelines, and application of human factors and road safety engineering principles. They are intended for use by private contractors, consultants, utility companies, and provincial/municipal personnel, and provide a supplement to existing local manuals and potential content for creating or updating local manuals.

The Guidelines are organized into five parts:

  • Part A: Fundamental Concepts
  • Part B: Transportation Management Plans
  • Part C: Work Zone Road Safety Audits
  • Part D: Guidance for Temporary Traffic Control Plans
  • Part E: Temporary Traffic Control Layouts

This guide is not intended to be used as a stand-alone document on work zone safety; rather it should be used in conjunction with the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada and/or local traffic control guidance.
