Course Description

This course is structured for anyone involved in traffic management. If, at any time your employees are directing traffic on roadways, they must have received flag person training from an approved training organization such as Safety Services Manitoba. They must also demonstrate competency in applying this training at the workplace.

This certification course is designed for workers with no previous experience as a flagperson and will enable employers to meet their legislative responsibilities under the Workplace Safety & HealthAct.

This course includes a written assessment to validate training competencies.

Learning Outcomes

  • Legal duties and responsibilities
  • Guidelines for effective implementation
  • Highway Traffic Act/Workplace Safety & Health Act
  • Traffic engineering and standards policies

No certificates will be issued until a competency form is completed and returned to SSM for approval.

A temporary card is issued in order to complete the competency tests.
