The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry sponsored a series of public service announcements in 2013 on workplace safety in hazardous occupations, asking Virginians who work in the industries covered in the announcements to watch the videos and be aware of the dangers associated with the work involved.

A new Honeywell Life Safety Experience Center opened in Houston, Texas on September 18, 2013.
In July 2013, the Colorado Department of Transportation rolled into place the new I-70/Pecos Street Bridge, a project supported by $4.38 million in federal funds. By building the bridge off site and then sliding it into place overnight -- a technique advocated by FHWA's Every Day Counts initiative -- CDOT was able to keep the highway lanes open as long as possible and limit closure to a single weekend. In fact, crews completed the roll-in and cleanup 4.5 hours ahead of an already ambitious schedule, further minimizing inconvenience to travelers.
