Safety Rules for the Québec Film and Video
If police assistance is not useful, signalling must be
assigned to technicians equipped with the necessary
equipment, in compliance with the Highway Safety
Code and the Regulation respecting road signs. For
example, when traffic is closed on a two-way road,
there must be a flagman in each of the lanes. The
flagmen must be able to communicate among them-
selves at all times and with the set in an emergency.
8. Flagmen must wear jackets with reflective white strips
and a safety helmet in the colours specified in the
Regulation respecting road signs. They must stay on
the shoulder or in the closed lane, at a location where
they can easily direct traffic. They must do the work
by transmitting the signals indicated in the regulation.
9. When the public road is partially closed, the techni-
cians who have to work outside the zone controlled
by production must wear visible strips during the day
and reflective strips at night. Technicians working on
a public road that is not closed must always wear them.
10. When the work is done at night, the flagman must be
illuminated so as to be visible at the distance specified
in the regulation.
11. When a sidewalk is closed due to work, a temporary
passage at least one metre wide must be developed
on the side of houses or buildings. If the passage can-
not be developed on this side, it must be developed
on the roadway and marked off by visual references.
Pedestrian traffic may, if necessary, be diverted onto
the opposite sidewalk, at the location where pedestri-
ans can cross the road.
12. It is forbidden to park in front of fire hydrants. In
addition, vehicles must not be parked within 3 m of
access to siamese connections on buildings.
