A Traffic Control Person (TCP) is crucially important in assisting to mitigate the flow of traffic. One of the most important characteristics of a TCP is to ensure road users and public are able to travel safely. Most commonly you will find TCP’s implemented in construction zones, during lane closures, and to regulate the flow of traffic during special events.

Often also referred in the industry as “Flaggers” or “Traffic Flaggers”, Construction and work sites require TCP’s to enhance safety but also more importantly for accident prevention. Assisting drivers by signaling them to slow down or stop helps regulate the flow of traffic, and also ensures that congestion and delays are reduced.

Our TCP’s go through vigorous training to obtain the necessary Certifications which help to ensure that they are knowledgeable about traffic control techniques, safety protocols, and local traffic laws and regulations. Compliance with regulations are extremely important because if local laws are not followed and abided by, then this can potentially lead to legal consequences and fines.

Our TCP’s are able to use hand, sign, and verbal communication methods to bring clarity so that drivers understand traffic situations and their required actions. At All Way Traffic Control our TCP’s work in conjunction with our Lane Closure Technicians (LCT) to implement Traffic Management Plans (TMP) to strategically manage traffic to keep it moving, preventing long backups and reducing frustration among drivers.
