Traffic Control Persons
Each year, many workers are injured or killed while working as traffic control persons. Sometimes workers with little or no experience or training are used as Traffic Control Persons. Quality safety training is needed to instruct and train TCP's and thus prevent injuries and deaths.
The objective of this course by Expert Safety Solutions, is to explain the purpose of traffic control persons, which is to protect construction crews and the public by regulating traffic flow whenever it is required to ensure construction is completed in a safe manner while ensuring that the public safety takes priority.
