NRSWA Street Works Operative Course Details

New road and street works are everywhere across the UK, keeping our roads safe and traffic moving. In addition, they play a significant role in the supply chain to keep deliveries and haulage moving and maintain our constant supply of living basics like gas and electricity. With so much relying on quality, time and safety of our roads and infrastructure, the works are subject to legislation that provides a compulsory framework for new roads and street works activities to adhere to.

The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) sets out objectives to:

Ensure safety
Minimise inconvenience to people using a street
Reduce inconvenience to people with a disability
Protect the structure of the road and the apparatus in it

This Certification and Assessment Board for the Water Industry (CABWI) certification delivers the necessary skills, knowledge, and understanding of New Roads and Street Works for units 1 – 6 and 9 / LA – O5 + O8, cold-lay only. It is primarily aimed at operatives who carry out excavation activities as part of their role in street works.
