Traffic Control - Temporary Work Zones
DetailsEvery year workers are injured as a result of traffic-related incidents while performing work in and around public roadways. The Regulations for Construction Projects require employers to have a traffic protection plan in place to ensure that workers are protected. In addition, a specific traffic control plan, designed to protect both workers and road users, must be developed and available. This course assists those responsible for creating, implementing, and/or overseeing traffic control in temporary work areas to develop an effective traffic control plan.
Participants are taught using typical layout case studies, Ontario Traffic Manual (OTM) Book 7, and the Regulations for Construction Projects.
