The Street (Road) Works – Safety, Quality and Compliance Certificate has been designed for those who set or implement policy, manage or supervise staff that inspect or audit street works, and for those that carry out inspections or audits of ongoing or completed street works.
The certificate was developed by the Training and Accreditation Group TAG on behalf of HAUC (UK).
Typically, Candidates will include those inspectors / auditors and their senior managers who operate on behalf of a Highway (or Roads) Authority or their nominated agent, on behalf of a Statutory Undertaker or their contractual agents or for an independent Street Works quality assurance organisation and also those contractors that operate under New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA).
This Certificate does not in any way, replace or supersede the existing NRSWA qualification requirements, as prescribed within the individual Street Works (Qualifications of Operatives and Supervisors) Regulations of the four devolved nations of the United Kingdom (UK).
The Certificate contains three modules:
Module 1 – Legislation and Codes of Practice
Module 2 – Auditing or Inspecting Excavation, Backfill and Reinstatement Quality and Compliance
Module 3 – Auditing or Inspecting Signing, Lighting and Guarding Safety and Compliance
All three modules must be achieved in order to achieve the HAUC (UK) Street (Road) Works – Safety, Quality and Compliance Certificate.
