Flagging personnel are important assets to the function and safety of moving trains. Flagging protection is commonly used to ensure that trains move safely through construction areas managed by TTR or other outside firms.
TTR uses various methods of track protection, including:
- Rule 42 protection
- Safety Watch
- T.O.P Protection
Depending on the situation, TTR will employ any of these procedures to ensure safe train movement and an efficient construction environment.
All TTR flagging personnel are equipped and trained regularly to ensure that proper protection is provided to both trains and workers.
