Enrolling in the latest 2012 Washington State approved Traffic Control Flagger Certification Course is the first step "on the road" to gaining employment with construction contractors and temporary labor agencies throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho & Montana.
This Course was developed by The Evergreen Safety Council using specific Federal (MUTCD) and Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) guidelines. Flagger Safety and Compliance is monitored by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) See www.lni.wa.gov/Safety/Topics/AtoZ/topic.asp?KWID=119
PLEASE NOTE: This class is REQUIRED by L&I to conduct ANY non-emergency flagger controlled operations on public roadways in the State of Washington.

Even though Law Enforcement and Fire (EMS) Agencies operate under OSHA regulations, they should consider having their personnel attend our Flagger Certification course. Meeting OSHA regulations may not be enough to protect local "First Responder" personnel when dealing with traffic thru accident/incident scenes. Nationwide accident records show that in 2009 alone, over 140 Firefighters were struck by motorists while trying to battle structure fires, in 25 MPH residential areas!
The Washington State Flagger Certification Course is a 1 day class, typically held on Saturdays. Though Evergreen Safety Council only requires the course to be a minimum of 6 hours, our class typically runs 8 hours to provide a thorough broad-base explanation of what's expected to be a safe Certified Flagger. We do not operate our training sessions like it's a "cattle processing" class. We sincerely want our students to comprehend and understand the information provided.
We expand into Driver Perception (PRT), "real world" reaction times, looking at traffic control from the drivers view and how our overall mental and physical health affects our performance.
Our classes are routinely provided in Tacoma, however classes can be arranged in surrounding areas such as Seattle, Bremerton, Puyallup, Olympia, Auburn, Renton and others depending on class sizes.
Students are taught the fundamentals of traffic control, including:
All Students are provided:
The latest 2012 Flagger Certification Handbook (Theirs to keep - and a useful field tool).
A student folder complete with various print and visual handouts that all Flaggers should have to conduct traffic control safely and in compliance with the WAC's and laws.
Non-Expiring Discount Coupons good at select local work wear retailers for safety gear and clothing. There's no expiration or limit on the number of visits the coupons can be used! (Limit - 1 coupon per visit).
A 7mm professionally laminated Flagger Certification Card (waterproof)!
When our students pass our classroom "open book" exam with a minimum passing score of 80%, they receive the Certified Flagger Card (laminated) the same day which is valid for 3 years from the date of issuance. The Certification Card is valid for use in the States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho & Montana.
