Controlling traffic through work areas is one of the most important -- and dangerous -- operations in construction maintenance. The National Safety Council's Flagger Training Course is a comprehensive skill-building session that meets federal industry guidelines: the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) guidelines and the ANSI standard ISEA-107-1999. The Office of Highway Safety, the Federal Highway Administration, and several state Departments of Transportation have reviewed this program.
The primary objectives of the program are to train flaggers to provide safe passage of traffic through and around work areas and to minimize confusion by bringing standard flagging procedures to our nation's highways. To get your crew members trained and certified in safe flagging techniques in just four hours.
This course is a must for novice construction work zone flaggers in both one- and two-person flagging operations. Experienced flaggers can attend this course as a refresher. All attendees receive a certificate of course completion.
A local National Safety Council training center can arrange to teach this course on-site at the location of your choice. Learn the same essentials of proper work zone flagger training at a site convenient to your crew!
