Improve worker and motorist safety with this 6-hour training!
In 2019, there were 842 fatalities in work zones across the United States. 135 of these were workers. Basic Work Zone Traffic Control aims to improve worker and motorist safety through learning the proper use of traffic control devices during road maintenance and construction operations, helping participants find out how to use specific types of traffic control devices and how to plan, set up and maintain a work zone.
Basic Work Zone Traffic Control covers the following items in detail with a fun combination of lecture and interactive activities:
- Why temporary traffic Control (TTC) is needed
- When TTC is needed and how much
- Traffic control zones
- Traffic control devices
- Set-up of traffic control zones
This workshop will bring to light the hazards that field workers face every day in construction zones.
