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

The course content includes:

  • New Roads and Street Works Act

  • Basic principles of location and avoidance of underground services

  • Hazard identification and the risks associated with them

  • Reading and interpreting site plans

  • Identifying duct and cable

  • Practical use of equipment

At the end of the assessment, successful delegates will:

  • Understand the basic principles of the NRSW Act and CABWI standards

  • Identify potential risks to themselves and others

  • Read and understand site plans

  • Operate cable avoidance tools to avoid or locate underground apparatus

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.
