      The Funniest Roadworker Puns To Share While At Work

      The Funniest Roadworker Puns To Share While At Work

      Looking for Some Humor While Fixing The Road? We’ve Got You!

      Roadworkers are a vital part of our society. If you’re one, or you know one, why not share these puns to add some lighthearted laughter to the serious business of repairing roads? Also, never forget that anyone working next to a road should wear a safety reflective vest to keep them safe from vehicles. But for now, let’s get punny…

      1: Something To Poke Fun at Signs

      Question: Ever seen those ‘End Road Work. Thank You.’ signs?

      Answer: For years, I thought they were put up by polite anarchist protestors.

      2: A Bar Walks onto A Construction Site…

      No. This joke goes…

      Ever hear about the construction worker who took up a job in a bar rather than doing roadwork?

      He’s a tar-tender now.

      3: Punny: My boss left work and said he was going to ‘hit the road’. I said, ‘don’t hurt your hand’!

      All jokes aside, we at Kolossus take workwear seriously. Very seriously. One of the most important pieces of gear a roadworker can wear is a reflective vest. The neon colors and reflective strips have been scientifically proven to catch motorists’ eyes and make them more cautious.

      Especially when working early in the morning or after dark, roadworkers need motorists to be aware that they’re there. That’s why our reflective gear comes in multiple options! We’ve got everything from a comfortable long-sleeved top, to a vest with handy pockets for cell phones, notebooks, and even a sneaky sandwich – all at affordable prices.

      The Best Places to Find Construction Jobs After COVID-19

      Construction workers have long been – and continue to be – in high demand in the U.S. And while current employment is still below the peak level of February 2020, the industry continues to grow. Here are the top four best places to find construction jobs in 2022.

      New York: After the lockdown, New York City accounted for more than half of the country’s construction job losses, but it has rebounded since restrictions started lifting. New York City remains one of the number one cities to find construction jobs in the United States.

      California: Cali, especially San Francisco, is one of the best places to work in construction in 2022. It has one of the highest hourly rates for construction workers and the highest vacancies nationwide.

      Houston: Houston has a growing real estate market, making construction workers a highly indemand resource.

      Chicago: The Chicago Metro area also ranks highly as a city where construction work is indemand, and the cost of living compared to one’s salary makes for a comfortable life.

      As a durable workwear brand, Kolossus Workwear’s purpose is invested in the wellbeing of the salt-of-the-earth people who keep the country running: Construction workers. We achieve this by equipping construction workers with workwear that is protective, comfortable, and functional to boot. From coveralls to reflective vests, we’ve got everything you need.

      Planning To Commute To Work? Stay Safe With Kolossus

      Bike commuting has almost doubled over the last two decades. If you’re looking to increase your fitness, save fuel, and save yourself time in traffic, you’ll need high quality safety gear! The first thing on your list should be a helmet, but the second should be a high visibility vest. Here’s why high visibility matters:

      Prevent Accidents Or Injuries

      Traffic is hectic enough as it is, without worrying that motorists won’t be able to see you. Especially if you plan to ride during dusk or dawn, when visibility is low, it’s vital that you make yourself as noticeable as possible.

      Why Neon – And Why Green, Yellow, Orange And Red – And Not Other Colors?

      Our eyes respond best to very bright colors, and florescent green, yellow, orange, and red aremost visible in low light. Colors like pink or blue don’t provide enough contrast with the environment around them to be considered high vis.

      How Does it Work?

      High vis gear is made using florescent pigments that were first developed in the 1930s to make magical art in the entertainment industry. Now, it’s used all over the world to keep road workers, construction workers, and cyclists safe.

      Wearing a high visibility vest or other high vis gear like ankle and knee reflectors makes you 94% more likely to be seen on the road, according to a 2012 study. Keep yourself safe with our functional high vis gear that also has pockets!

      3 Facts Road Builders Need to Know About

      Did you know that, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), most fatal occupational injuries at road construction sites are caused by workers being struck by mobile equipment or vehicles? While there’s plenty that factors into this grim statistic, there are three simple ways to prevent tragedy before it strikes.

      #1: Stay Vigilant

      Always look before making any move – even if it’s taking a few steps to one side. Pay close attention to any potential hazards around you at all times, and monitor movement. Try to stand in a space with an unobstructed view of potential hazards, and remember – every road worker is responsible for collectively ensuring that all traffic channeling devices are placed appropriately.

      #2: Slam the Breaks

      Parking breaks must be applied to all equipment. While it might sound obvious, make sure you never stand below any suspended equipment like booms, arms, or buckets. In these areas, it’s crucial to be particularly vigilant.

      #3: High Visibility Clothing

      Road workers are a lot less likely to be struck if they can be seen from afar – and that’s where high-visibility clothing comes in. In fact, many Federal U.S. Government agencies mandate the use of high-visibility clothing on specific construction sites. 

      Ultimately, while you can’t control the careless actions of others, you can – to a large extent – take control of your own safety and well-being. Kolossus Workwear’s High Visibility Clothing Collection makes sure you’re seen from every angle, avoiding disaster before it has a chance to strike.

      What Aircraft Maintenance Crews Need to Know

      While aviation crew vests have long been crucial in the aviation industry, safety regulations are always changing. Here are five safety vest regulation mandates you need to know if you’re an aircraft mechanic.

      1: They Need to Be Reflective

      Reflective safety vests must be worn at all times on airport ground. Anyone found without one will be fined or asked to leave. Is it worth the risk?

      2: They Must be Worn by Everyone, at All Times

      From baggage loaders to tug drivers to mechanics, anyone who works at a major airport must be wearing their reflective safety vest day and night.

      3: They Need to Comply with ANSI 107-1999 Standards

      From breathable fluorescent polyester fabric to high-visibility 2” reflective tape on the front and back, aircraft personnel can’t just wear any safety vest. They need a compliant one designed to mitigate worker hazards.

      Looking Ahead

      Safety isn’t negotiable. To stay safe and compliant on the job, choose the coverall company trusted by the best aircraft companies and mechanics in the industry.
