Flagging and Basic Traffic Control

Abstract: 
The most important responsibility of a flagger is the safety of his/her fellow workers, the motorist, and him/herself. The Flagging and Basic Traffic Control manual is designed to enhance the knowledge of the flagger to promote safety in the work zone. A skilled flagger helps reduce problems in a potentially hazardous situation. The benefits of proper flagging methods are: less confusion for the motoring public, fewer accidents, less injury to workers and the public and reduced claims from accidents. Well-qualified personnel are required for flagging. Some of the topics covered in the Level I Flagging manual are:
- The Flagger
- The Motoring Public
- Flagging Procedures
- Channelization
- Signs
- Special Conditions
