Streetworks

July 15 - July 19

The New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) sets out the procedures and guidelines for personnel employed by local authorities, utilities companies and their contractors for the purpose of any road works in the highway or on footpaths.

Benefits of attending this course:

  • A comprehensive understanding of the risks, and control measures to be applied around buried services in order to avoid direct contact with them.
  • Better planning of work in the highway, to promote a safe system of work, install signing, lighting and guarding correctly, and to remove it in the correct sequence, once work has been completed.
  • Gain a better understanding of different methods of excavation, and the tools and equipment used.
  • Have an ability to carry out or supervise reinstatement of openings in the highway in accordance with current stipulated procedures.

The theoretical aspect of the course is delivered in the classroom, but there is an emphasis on a hands-on experience, using all appropriate tools and equipment under constant supervision.

Assessment focuses on learners demonstrating their knowledge by practical assessments to agreed criteria, and by successful completion of multi choice question papers for each unit.
