The Georgia DOT has offices all over the state. The information telephone number is 800-573-6445 and they can direct you to your serving district office if you are not familiar with your local DOT. They are responsible for all safety considerations at all work sites on Georgia’s highways and interstates.
Most highway work site injuries and deaths involve the workers on site. Nearly all such accidents are preventable and the DOT is constantly upgrading work site requirements in an effort to reduce accidents and fatalities. Because of this constant improvement, it is recommended that you contact your DOT rep prior to each job because requirements may have changed. DOT enforcement may also differ from county to county.
Please be aware that the DOT can and will shut down your work site if you are not in conformance with their requirements. Prior approval can save you many headaches on the job.
