Traffic Control Safety Training

Traffic Control Safety Training When You Need It

Warning Lites is so serious about safety we helped found the American Traffic Safety Services Association. That’s why we offer safety training for your team at convenient locations and times, or at your site for a fee. Personalized training can cover any topics you need to make all your projects and events safe and successful.

Along with customized training, we also offer an annual work zone traffic control seminar at the University of Minnesota’s Center for Transportation Studies as part of our partnership with the Minnesota Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). The seminar provides an overview of basic traffic control procedures for work zones, the latest in traffic control devices and safety devices, unique approaches to traffic control and methods for reducing risk and liability.

  • Mobile operations
  • Signing and liability
  • Installation of traffic control devices

Mike Leaf, our Marketing Director, leads the training sessions.
