Snow and Ice Pooled Fund Cooperative Program (SICOP)
Workforce Resiliency Policies (Pandemic Plans)

AASHTO Liaison
Rick Nelson, SICOP Coordinator

2020 has brought a heightened awareness regarding workforce resiliency and the ability to adapt to a variety of working conditions while still maintaining a safe transportation network.  For winter operations stockpiles must be full, equipment must be serviced and maintained in a mission ready state, and drivers must be behind the wheel in order to keep highways passable during weather events.

Several states have shared their plans and policies for operating in a social distanced environment.  If you would like to share your plan and include it in this resource please contact
