Review Lesson 4

3. Placing a trained and motivated employee in your work zone as the flagger is the best work zone traffic control policy.

Your answer:

B) False

Your answer is incorrect.

Supervisors may assume that everyone knows how to flag when, in fact, road workers need to be trained to be effective flaggers. Flagging is a very important and demanding job in a work zone. Flaggers prevent traffic from injuring workers, emergency repair and rescue personnel, and the traveling public.
