NRSWA Street Works Supervisor Course

 

New road and street works are everywhere across the UK, keeping our roads safe and traffic moving. With so much reliance 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.

 

 

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

Overseeing works and monitoring the teams working on these often high-risk projects is a fundamental role on-site and one that requires acute attention to safety.

This Certification and Assessment Board for the Water Industry (CABWI) certification delivers the necessary skills, knowledge, and understanding of New Roads & Street Works for Supervisors (Units 1, 10 -14 & 16 / LA, S1 – S5 & S7). It is primarily aimed at supervisors who monitor operatives carrying out excavation activities as part of their role in street works.
