Overview of the Traffic Control Program

Traffic control is a cognitively demanding job that requires significant skills training. TCPs are making decisions on behalf of drivers, workers and the public and must be vigilant every second of their shift. It’s important that they’re professionally trained to meet the needs of the industries they represent.

The BCCSA is a WorkSafeBC approved training provider of traffic control persons in BC.
