Flagger Job Description

Job summary 1

A Flagger directs traffic for a road construction crew. Flaggers hold a large orange flag, which they use to help indicate to motorists to slow down, stop and pass through. Flaggers generally work in conjunction with other flaggers, with each standing at opposite ends of the construction area and coordinating traffic flow via communication, either via two-way radios or hand signals. Flaggers must fully understand the use of all signaling devices at their disposal, including flags, portable signs, and paddles for daytime use. Flaggers may also be used after dark, usually with lighted wands or other illuminated signaling devices. In addition to directing traffic, flaggers also perform duties such as setting up flagger signs, cones, barrels, and any other traffic control devices deemed necessary. Flaggers must remain alert and keep traffic moving while ensuring the safety of motorists, construction workers, and themselves.
