About Work Zone Flagger
From New York State Department of Transportation Standard Specifications:
?Flagger Training. All flaggers shall be adequately trained in flagging operations by recognized training programs, including the American Traffic Safety Services Association, The National Safety Council, unions, or construction industry associations, or by an individual who holds a current certification as a flagger training instructor from such a program. Prior to the start of flagging operations, the Contractor shall provide to the Engineer a list of certified flaggers to be used in the operation, identifying the source of flagger training for each individual. When requested by the Engineer, flaggers shall demonstrate their competency in flagging procedures. Flaggers not competent in flagging procedures shall be retrained or replaced at once.?
According to OSHA, employees being struck by vehicles or mobile equipment lead to many work zone fatalities or injuries. Work zones need traffic controls identified by signs, cones, barrels and barriers.
The National Safety Council Flagger Training is a comprehensive skill-building course that meets federal industry guidelines: the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the ANSI standard ISEA-107-2015. The Office of Highway Safety, the Federal Highway Administration, and several state Departments of Transportation have reviewed this program.
