Traffic Control for Safer Work Zones (with Flagger Cards)
Monday, November 18, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PST)
Allan Hancock College and the Central California Environmental Training Center, in partnership with UC Berkeley’s Institute of Transportation Studies, will offer a free, 8-hour workshop in traffic control at the Lompoc Valley Center in November. Targeted groups for training include cities, counties, state and federal agencies, utility companies, and private contractors.
Traffic Control for Safer Work Zones will be held on Monday, November 18, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., in room 3-109 at the Lompoc Valley Center, located at One Hancock Drive. Training is Cal/OSHA compliant, designed to apply to urban and rural areas, and includes extensive instruction on proper flagging procedures. Flagger Cards will be issued to successful completers.
The workshop will be taught by Dave Royer, who holds professional certifications in traffic and civil engineering. Royer retired from the position of principal engineer with the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation after 35 years of service. Since retirement, he has served as a consulting traffic and highway engineer. A leading expert in traffic control and safety, Royer is an active member of the Work Area Traffic Control Handbook (WATCH) Committee, and all participants will receive a pocket-sized copy of WATCH.
Due to limited seating, online pre-registration is highly recommended. Although there is no fee for the workshop, a temporary vehicle parking permit ($2) must be purchased at the designated campus vending machine on the day of training.
