Flagger Safety : Past, Present, Future

A new IRF Webinar discussed the importance of proper flagger training as well as the future of work zone safety through a review of state of the art technologies used around the world.

It is not a coincidence that one of the most critical jobs for a road construction crew is also one of the most dangerous. This job is the flagger. This very dangerous and important work zone job requires extensive training as well as a calm, patient personality. Without a well-trained flagger or an automated flagger device, the safety of the entire crew as well as the motoring public could be in jeopardy.

Presenter: David Krahulec, Vice President, Horizon Signal Technologies

David Krahulec has been Vice President and COO of Horizon Signal Technologies since 2002. He serves as an influential member of the IRF, ATSSA, ARTBA, and NEMA. Mr. Krahulec has been committed to work zone safety for over 20 years. Mr. Krahulec’s efforts have brought visibility to the importance of using life saving, state-of-the art, best practices in work zone safety throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America

A recording of the webinar is available on demand. Please contact Magid Elabyad (, Director of Training & Membership Services, for details.
