NRSWA (Operative)

This training is essential for operatives and supervisors to learn the legislative framework, practical actions they must take, safety principles and more. In addition, delegates will review legal requirements, ensure safety compliance, and understand procedures and appropriate documentation and classifications.

The course content includes:

  • Location and avoidance of underground apparatus

  • Appropriate signing, lighting and guarding

  • Excavation on the highway

  • Reinstating compacting and backfill materials

  • Reinstating sub-base and road base non-bituminous materials

  • Reinstating cold-lay bituminous materials

  • Reinstating hot-lay bituminous materials

  • Reinstating modular surfaces and concrete footways

At the end of the training, successful delegates will:

  • Summarise the New Roads and Street Works (NRSW) Act

  • Select appropriate PPE and safety equipment to carry out street works activities

  • Perform duties of each unit and/or qualification, following CABWI standards in-line with current legislation and ACOP where applicable

  • Provide a safe working environment for themselves, colleagues and the public

Once the delegate has their CABWI certificate, we will then send off for their SWQR card, which will enable them to gain access to the site.
