NRSWA Street Works Operatives Full Course - New Road And Street Works

Course

Overview

This course is designed for individuals who are required to carry out duties such as locating underground cables, equipment set up for highway use, carry out excavations and reinstatements, in line with the New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) standards and apply with the Approved Codes of Practice (ACOP’s), highlighting the procedures and/or guidelines in place for employers and contractors, including notification requirements and safety to highway users. New road and street works are fundamental to keeping our roads safe and traffic moving.

In highway maintenance quality work and adherence to national standards is vital to ensure the infrastructure of our carriageways and to keep the supply chain moving without causing adverse delays and soaring costs. New Roads and Street works can be very hazardous to the untrained operative, pedestrians and live traffic if standards and safe working practices are not carried out. New Roads and Street works are subject to legislation that provides a compulsory framework for highway maintenance activities.

The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) sets out objectives to ensure safety, minimise inconvenience to people and traffic, reduce inconvenience to people with a disability and to protect the structure of the road and the apparatus in it.

The Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) certification delivers the necessary skills, knowledge, and understanding of New Roads and Street Works for Operatives (Units 1, 2 – 7 + 9/ LA, 01 – 06 + 08) including Hot lay Tarmac. It is primarily aimed at highway maintenance operatives who carry out excavation and reinstatement activities as part of their job role.

Delivery

The delivery of this course will be primarily a mix of practical, video, and classroom-based exercises and tutorials. Candidates will cover legislative and administrative knowledge and awareness while taking part in practical tuition, focusing on excavation and reinstatement of materials throughout. The candidate will need to attend and complete both the theory and practical assessments to achieve the qualification. At the end of each unit there will be an online timed assessment under exam conditions and an invigilator will be present.

The course reflects national standards and industry best practices and is fully accredited in line with regulations. Our occupationally competent trainers will assess candidates over the five-day course, awarding successful candidates a certificate for each of the eight units included.
