All persons performing flagging along Maryland roadways are required to have passed the Maryland approved flagger course. The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) Training Course is the only approved flagger training program for Maryland flaggers. This program is also recognized and approved in Delaware, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington DC.
Upon successful completion of this course, flaggers will be able to:
- Provide protection for on-site project personnel and safe passage of traffic through and around work areas
- Have a thorough understanding of flagging procedures and proper use of required equipment
- Ensure that temporary traffic control zones follow the principles outlined in the MUTCD and other standard references
