Roadside flaggers warn and direct motorists when construction or repair work takes place in an area where the roadway cannot be shut down. Their presence alerts drivers to upcoming changes in the traffic pattern, hazards, and the presence of other roadside workers.
The construction industry is growing, and with it the need for qualified, certified workers. Evergreen Safety Council’s Flagger Instructor Certification is an 8-hour course approved by the Washington State Department of Transportation. Upon completion of the class and successfully passing a final exam, students will receive their flagger certification card.
