2/8/23 @ 8:45 a.m. - Late last week, several new employees of the Road Department participated in Maintenance of Traffic training to learn about guidelines related to temporary traffic control during a construction project. During this training, employees focused on flagging operations and were able to test their knowledge in a mock work zone set up at the Hilliard Road Department site.
Flagger training is one of several areas covered in the Road Department's new hire training. Other training activities for new hires include learning to operate small power equipment such as chainsaws, pole saws, and other tools needed for construction maintenance, as well as overview of the County's Safety Policy.
The County enhanced its new hire training last year to provide additional guidance to entry-level Road Department personnel. During the 21/22 Fiscal Year, the County also established an Apprenticeship Program designed to give Road Department employees a clear defined career path with opportunities to advance quickly. These individuals can begin their career as a Maintenance Helper and within 3-4 years, advance to a Maintenance Operator with the ability to operate heavy equipment. This is the perfect opportunity for someone wishing to learn a trade and make a career in Nassau County.
