Work-zone Flagger Training

Controlling traffic through work areas is one of the most important – and dangerous – operations in construction maintenance. 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.
The primary objective of Workzone Flagger Training is 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. 

This program will have students trained and certified in safe flagging techniques in four hours.
