About Us/


traffic cone

Pam Ackerman first opened the doors of Work Zone Safety, Inc. in May 2003 with the desire to start a company that stressed the concepts of integrity, safety, family and community.

To fulfill this desire she created a business that supports its employees and customers while giving back to local and national charities. With low turnover, Work Zone Safety proves to be a good place to work and is also able to meet the demands of the contractor with our seasoned and experienced employees that are able and willing to serve.

Traffic control was once an industry of hand-shake deals and collaboration of contractors for the most cost-efficient and safe projects, while also providing for those in need. Work Zone Safety strives to bring the focus back to the industry with these concepts.
