Traffic control person training
WorkSafeBC requires that all traffic control persons (TCPs) be trained to the standards in the latest edition of the Traffic Control Manual for Work on Roadways (the Traffic Control Manual).
Get trained in B.C.
Training for traffic control persons (TCPs) is based on two types of job location. Where a worker will perform his or her job duties will determine the type of training he or she needs.
Those working in high-risk locations must be trained:
- Through independent certified trainers
- To WorkSafeBC standards
Currently, WorkSafeBC only considers training offered by the B.C. Construction Safety Alliance as meeting acceptable standards and requirements.
In non-high-risk locations, those working in traffic control can be trained by their employers — so long as training covers all specific functions of the job.
