Title: Work Zone Traffic Control
Description: This course will utilize both classroom-based instruction and hands-on excercises to provide both management and operations professionals the information needed to fully understand this essential component of water utility safety. Specific topics covered include the importance of work zone traffic control safety; how to fit a work zone traffic control safety program into an overall water utility safety program; regulatory road safety requirements and how to establish your own work zone traffic control safety program; the types of signage required; and typical tools used in the field. In addition, students will review how to use the “Work Zone Safety Pocket Guide” flip book to set up various work zones and participate in small-group tabletop road safety problem-solving exercises.
Who Should Attend: If work area protection impacts your job, then you will find this workshop of interest. Operations and management professionals who require information on road safety can benefit from this comprehensive, one day program. Whatever your job title-team leader, foreman, crew chief supervisor or team/crew/staff member - when road safety is an important part of your work day, an effective work area protection program and adequate training are essential to you and your utility.
Pre-requisites: None
CEUs: 0.6
Learning Objectives/Outcomes: In this interactive workshop participants will have an opportunity to examine: the importance of work zone traffic control as part of an overall water utility safety program; use of traffic control devices according to federal regulations; the parts of the work zone; use of signs for work zone traffic control; use of barricades and channelizing devices for work zones; types and use of road safety equipment; and how to utilize the MUTCD pocket guide to set up a work zone. Upon completion of this workshop you will be able to: Explain the importance of work zone traffic control as part of an overall water utility safety program; Explain the proper use of traffic control devices according to federal regulations; Name the parts of the work zone; Identify the proper signs, barricades, and channelizing devices for to establish safe work zones; Set up a safe “tabletop” work zone given differing road configurations and variable weather, speed limit , traffic flow, and time of day considerations.
Learning Outcome/Assessment Method: In addition to the course’s interactive learning format shaped by participant-instructor question and answer throughout, a multiple choice written self-assessment of learning outcomes will be administered following completion of the morning and afternoon sessions of the course. The written assessment will be comprised of straight forward multiple choice questions covering the core content of each instructional segment (presentation) and general course information for a total of 20 questions. Each multiple choice question will examine your knowledge and understanding with regard to key concepts and information presented in a given segment and the overall course. There will be no trick questions. Following the completion of each assessment, a group review of the assessment will be conducted by the course facilitators and the NEWWA Education Staff proctor. Participants will “self correct” their assessments during this review and indicate their score on the top of their answer sheets. Participants must achieve a score of 14 out of 20 correct for a “passing grade”. Answer sheets will be submitted to/reviewed by NEWWA Education Staff proctor during the course sign-out process. Any participant who does not achieve the required passing score will meet with the NEWWA Education Staff proctor for an oral review/debrief following completion of the course. This will provide learners with an opportunity to re-examine assessment questions and answers, clarify information, and develop insight into their responses. It will also provide an opportunity to access additional learning support if needed. In addition, you'll participate in small group table top road safety problem solving exercises. Utilizing scale road scenarios and model vehicles, you'll have a chance to practice your road safety application skills-the one's you'll need when you hit the real streets! You and your breakout group members will have the opportunity to “report out” and compare your table top exercise “solutions” to the larger group.
