No one likes being stuck traffic due to road construction. One of the many things a traffic flagger does is set up work zones and make sure drivers can navigate around road construction as quickly and safely as possible. That's why is important to have a traffic flagger on a construction team.

Traffic flaggers are responsible for public safety and make the greatest number of contacts with the public of all highway workers. Flaggers know how to use all their signaling devices – flags, signs, and paddles - helping to increase efficiency of construction and reduce vehicle traffic.

There is an increasing the need for flaggers nationwide. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobs in this sector will grow 21% by 2020. All flaggers should be trained in safe traffic control practices and public contact techniques, so what makes SSPTMS Certified Flaggers different? Our flaggers go beyond the basic requirements.
