NDLTAP Introduces R.E.D. Book

Posted: Jan 22, 2021

NDLTAP recently released the RED (Recognize, Eliminate, and Discuss Safety) Book, a new resource designed to help road workers and managers eliminate accidents and injuries.

NDLTAP Road and Bridge Engineer Kelly Bengtson adapted the Minnesota publication for North Dakota workers. The R.E.D. Book program is designed to eliminate unsafe acts by requiring employees to immediately identify and discuss hazards that can hurt them. By recognizing these hazards in advance, our employees are less likely to commit unsafe acts. The R.E.D. Book was introduced in webinars and live presentations across the state in July in conjunction with Denise Brown's efforts to elevate safety this year in a "Safety Switch" push to get everyone (workers and road users) home safely every night.

The NDDOT R.E.D. Book can be found on the NDLTAP Safety Resources page.
