New York Safety and Training’s OSHA Flagger class is an interactive learning experience that teaches participants the safe and effective practice of directing pedestrian and vehicular traffic at and around active construction sites. Students learn proper signaling techniques and how to appropriately and safety control the flow of traffic. The course presents the required personal protective equipment to be worn during flagging operations.
