"The purpose of the Ontario Traffic Manual (OTM) is to provide information and guidance for transportation practitioners and to promote uniformity of treatment in the design, application and operation of traffic control devices and systems across Ontario.
The objective is safe driving behaviour, achieved by a predictable roadway environment through the consistent, appropriate application of traffic control devices. Further purposes of the OTM are to provide a set of guidelines consistent with the intent of the Highway Traffic Act and to provide a basis for road authorities to generate or update their own guidelines and standards. "
Our full day course provides students with instruction on the guidelines outlined in Book 7: Temporary Conditions including roles and responsibilities, practices and procedures, legislation, positioning and communicating with the motoring public and work crews to keep staff and the general public safe at all times in work zones.
Working conditions, traffic situations, struck-by hazards and night work are also discussed. Students will spend time developing a traffic control plan and discussing all details involved to successfully implement the plan.
