Flagger training and certification requirements
From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Standard and Supplemental Specifications:
“112.03.01 General Traffic Control.
All flaggers shall be trained in current MUTCD flagging procedures. Proof of training must be available for review at the Department’s request. Flagging credentials must be current within the last 5 years.”
For information about the flagger training program, check out Basic Work Zone and Flagger Qualification course.
From KYTC Employee Safety & Health Manual:
“Before KYTC employees are allowed to engage in flagging procedures, they must successfully pass the KYTC course provided by KYTC employee safety personnel and receive a valid KYTC Flagger Certification card. Employees should participate in refresher training every two years thereafter or if it is determined that retraining is necessary due to observed, non-compliant flagger procedures.”
