All flaggers working on Wisconsin state highways are now required to be trained and certified in a state-specific flagger training curriculum, and MEUW is offering offering a three-hour webinar to satisfy the training requirement. Participants can join the webinar from any internet-connected computer, tablet or smartphone from anywhere.
The new requirement came into effect Jan. 1, 2020, after Wisconsin Department of Transportation inspectors observed a number of work zone safety issues, including inattentive flaggers and improper use of personal protective equipment. The new training is designed to provide for the safety of flaggers and the traveling public.
Those who complete the webinar and then pass a required quiz will receive a certification card. Login instructions and links to materials needed for the webinar will be sent once a participant’s registration has been confirmed.
