NRSWA Supervisor

The New Roads and Street Works Act require that anyone who executes works for, or on behalf of a utility company, is qualified for the activities being carried out.

New Roads & Street Works ActAny street works site must have at least one qualified operative on site at all times during work, and the site must have a qualified supervisor appointed to the site who can oversee the works. The supervisor need not be on site at all times but must be able to adequately carry out the role. The supervisor qualification does not replace or overrule the operative qualification and one person cannot cover both roles at the same time.

Who Should Attend?

Courses are designed for candidates to perform supervisory duties; rather than operatives who physically carry out the work on the roadways and highways. Courses vary in their combinations of the units to, therefore, provide delegates with the skills and knowledge to perform supervisory duties. They will also need to be in accordance with the Street Works Act 1991.

Written work is included in the course.

The course covers the following units:

  • 001 – Location and avoidance of underground apparatus.
  • 010 – Monitoring, signing, lighting and guarding.
  • 011 – Monitoring excavation on the highway.
  • 012 – Monitoring reinstatement & compaction of backfill layer.
  • 013 – Monitoring reinstatement of sub and road base in a non-bituminous material.
  • *014 – Monitoring reinstatement of bituminous materials.
