Flagger Certification Information

According to Georgia Department of Transportation policy, after July 1, 1988 all flaggers doing any flagging on the State Highway System must have received training and a certificate upon completion of the training from a Department approved training program. This includes all Utility and Permit location operations. All costs for providing certified flaggers will be borne by the contractor and/or utility companies.

Failure to provide certified flaggers as required above shall be reason for suspending work regarding the flagger(s) until a certified flagger can be provided.
