    2650 SSM Flagperson Slideshow Banner2This course includes a written assessment to validate training competencies. This course is structured for anyone involved in traffic management. If your employees are directing traffic on roadways at any time they must have received flag person training from an approved training organization such as Safety Services Manitoba. This certification course is designed for workers with no previous experience as a flag person and will enable employers to meet their legislative responsibilities under the Workplace Safety & Health Regulations.

    Before being allowed to work as a flag person, a worker must hold a valid flagperson’s training certificate, issued by a person or organization that has been approved by the director of Workplace Safety and Health and must demonstrate competency in applying this training at the workplace.
