NHI training 133119 Safe and Effective Use of Law Enforcement Personnel in Work Zones is an interactive Web-based training (WBT) course that provides law enforcement agencies with the practices and procedures to improve traffic safety in work zones. Work
zone law enforcement is highly effective in reducing speeding, speed variability, and undesirable driving behaviors such as tailgating and unsafe lane changes, which improves both traffic and worker safety. The presence of work zone enforcement is also believed
to raise driver awareness and overall alertness, further improving work zone safety.
The purpose of this course is to provide basic knowledge to help save lives, avoid work zone crashes, and improve safety when working in a work zone. This course will provide tips for safe practices for law enforcement officers (LEO's) in work zones as well
as providing for a safer work zone environment. This Web-based training will educate participants on the standards and guidelines related to temporary traffic control in work zones; the role of LEO's in work zones; the components of a typical work zone; and
the proper practices and procedures related to the use of law enforcement officers in work zones.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the role of LEO's in work zones
- Explain proper practices and procedures related to the use of LEO's in work zones
- Explain safe operating practices of LEO's working in a Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) zone
133119 Safe and Effective User of Law Enforcement Personnel in Work Zones is a Web-based training course designed for LEO's. Specifically, this course targets state troopers, state, county, municipal officers, and highway patrol officers who will participate
