What is a Flag Person?
A flag person, also commonly known as a traffic control person, flagman/flag woman, or Lane Closure Technician, is essential to any project that may require traffic control measures and services including lane closures.
Conducting traffic control around cities, construction sites and major event traffic management such as music festivals or sporting events, a traffic control person designs safe lane closures and traffic detours with physical setup and removal of devices such as barricades, pylons, signage, and digital messaging boards.
The following are critical responsibilities of a Flagman:
- Keeping people safe by stopping, slowing, and safely directing traffic
- Providing traffic control directions and signals
- Protecting drivers, passengers, and workers by regulating traffic flow
Construction flagging is essential to managing traffic flow and protecting workers on a roadway during a construction project and helps create a safe work environment. A Central Protection Services road construction flagger stops, slows, and safely directs traffic flow along roadways or highways so traffic through a job site or construction zone is managed safely and efficiently.
What training do you need to become a road construction flagger or traffic control person?
