All employees begin in our entry-level position as a flag person.
Flag persons are required to direct vehicular traffic through a work zone and ensure the safety of the workers and the public in the surrounding area. Set up and maintenance of traffic control devices will be part of the flag person duties under the supervision of a certified supervisor. Pilot vehicle operation may be a part of this position as well.
In addition to flag person duties, the Crew Leader will set up basic work zone setups and flagging operations, and actively participate in controlling traffic in work zones. The Crew Leader has responsibility for the maintenance and function of the work zone as well as guiding and monitoring staff on site.
The Traffic Coordinator’s primary responsibility will be to set up and coordinate traffic control in advanced work zones. The Traffic Control Coordinator will also be responsible for implementing appropriate Traffic Management Plans and ensuring the worksite is functioning properly. Supervising, coordinating and providing guidance to Flag Persons is also part of this position. This will require a willingness to learn and complete all training. This acquired training must be demonstrated out in the field by performing Traffic Coordinator and Flag Person duties. The position requires varied, long, and flexible hours which will include some weekends, working in all types of weather, travelling to various sites outside of Brandon, MB for short and long term periods depending on the contracts, and some on-call requirements to meet the demands of the construction season.
Duties will include those of a Flag Person, Traffic Coordinator (training provided), deliveries and shop duties. Varied office duties will be required in conjunction with field requirements. Those office duties include, but are not limited to, training new hires, contractor relations, handling incoming and outgoing calls, scheduling staff, mailing and filing.
