Traffic Control (OTM Book 7) Training

Traffic control involves directing vehicular and pedestrian traffic around a construction zone or other road disruption, thus ensuring the safety of construction workers and the general public. If mobile equipment or public traffic is identified as a hazard in a work zone, the Ontario Traffic Manual Book 7 (Temporary Conditions) must be utilized.

Traffic Control is a course that is designed for any worker who works in or near vehicular traffic. This course offers a general overview of the key concepts, while also addressing the specific procedures involved with different types of work.

As with all other services offered, Intola Safety includes an explanation of the laws and regulations currently in place to protect workers.

The classroom component of the session includes visual materials including pictures and videos, and culminates with a knowledge verification component (written test). Some of the theoretical topics will include:

  • Outlining background / legislation relating to traffic control
  • Identifying hazards
  • Defining methods of control
  • Outlining components of Traffic Control Plans
  • Outlining responsibilities of Traffic Control Persons

Intola Safety can offer further training by working with specific paperwork (Traffic Control Plans, Hazard Assessments, etc.) that workers utilize in their respective organizations.

Further practical components of the session can include equipment inspections, demonstrations and hands-on practice (wherever possible) for participants. Some of the practical topics will include:

  • Completing paperwork
  • Referring to, and choosing appropriate Typical Layouts
  • Setting up a Typical Layout
