4-HOUR FLAGGER TRAINING
Our 4-Hour Flagger course is taught through the National Safety Council, and will educate students in the Federal and New York State policies, procedures and standards. Training will review general work zone safety while focusing on identifying and preventing hazardous conditions. The topics discussed in this course provide a thorough understanding of the proper signals and safe flagging techniques specific to New York regulations, flagging procedures and proper use of required equipment, and how to coordinate traffic movement through the work zone. Students will have an opportunity to review flagging skills using hands-on training and classroom activities.
