Flaggers are critical to worksite safety for traffic control. Flaggers can reduce the occurrences of accidents when used with other traffic control devices, and yet the job of flagger itself is probably the most dangerous position in the work zone. Flaggers are responsible for the safety of the public and workers, and must be trained in safe traffic control practices. Flaggers must be in good physical condition, be mentally alert and have the ability to react quickly in an emergency.
