Signs, Signals, and Barricades Construction online training prevents serious injuries and fatal accidents when working in a roadway construction work zone.
Roadway work zones are hazardous places, for both those who work within them and those who must drive through them. With an average of over 120 work-related deaths occurring at road construction sites each year, the use of signs, signals, and barricades is critically important.
This course is for:
This OSHA Signs, Signals, and Barricades training is designed for anyone whose actions may affect safety in the TTC zone. The MUTCD states that everyone "from upper-level management through field workers" should be trained on subjects that will help the individuals make safe decisions in their work role.
This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for the Signs, Signals, and Barricades in Construction Standard.
Case Study: While disassembling a lattice boom on a truck-mounted crane, a 37-year-old carpenter’s helper was fatally injured on January 30, 2006. Employees, including the victim, we trying to remove pins securing a 40-foot center section of the crane to the base boom section. Once the second bottom pin was dislodged, the boom fell. The victim was hit by the boom, which pinned him to the ground. Employees called 911 right away and tried to use a nearby crane to lift the boom off the man. EMS arrived about five minutes after the call and attempted resuscitation unsuccessfully. The man was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead.
Key Takeaway: To avoid accidents like this, employers must always follow manufacturer’s safety recommendations when working on cranes. Every employee working on assembling or disassembling cranes must be properly trained on safety procedures. Employers must also call pre-work safety meetings, identify hazards, as well as implement and enforce safety plans.

To ensure compliance with worker safety in roadway workzones, safety training must be conducted whenever necessary to maintain a working environment free from recognized hazards. According to the MUTCD, each person whose actions affect roadway work zone safety should receive training appropriate to the required job descriptions. This online certification course meets these training requirements.
