Job Description

Flagger Duties and Responsibilities:

Direct Vehicles Around Road Construction Sites

Flaggers use hand signals and signs to stop and direct traffic at construction sites. They typically use large direction signs to tell drivers when to stop or proceed slowly. Flaggers might also answer questions about detours.

Communicate with Other Flaggers and Construction Personnel

Using radios, flaggers communicate with other flaggers positioned at different spots along the construction site.

Place Traffic Cones and Construction Signs

Set up traffic cones and signs at and around road construction sites. These signs include detour signs, Road Work Ahead signs, End Road Work signs, and Road Closed signs. Flaggers also retrieve all cones and signs at the end of the workday as directed.

Flagger Skills and Qualifications:

If you can stand for long periods of time and have excellent communication skills and a mind for safety, then you could make a good flagger. Employers also prefer candidates who display the following skills:

* Physical fitness - in addition to standing for long periods, flaggers must be able to carry and lift equipment as needed

* Mechanical skills - flaggers must know how to use electronic safety and traffic control devices

* Communication skills - when providing directions and safety instructions, verbal communication skills are critical. Familiarity with nonverbal communication methods such as hand signals, signs, and other devices is equally important

* Organization skills - setting up cones and maintaining traffic patterns around construction sites requires that flaggers possess strong organization skills

* Interpersonal skills - the ability to greet drivers and pedestrians with a friendly, outgoing manner and to interact with a diverse population is essential
