The NRSWA supervisor course is a five-day training course designed to educate supervisors on street works health and safety.
Overall, on this streetworks course, you will gain the skills to supervise street works set by NRSWA 1991.
With this knowledge, you will competently manage your safety and that of others, whilst working on a street works site.
It is a legal requirement that you have a NRSWA qualification before working on a streetworks site as a supervisor.
The New Road and Street Works Act 1991 requires that streetworks are supervised by a person with a supervisor qualification.
As a supervisor, you will need to carry your swqr card with you whilst working on a streetworks site. Generally, you get your swqr card by attending and successfully passing a NRSWA supervisor course.
This streetworks supervisor course includes a theory session and practical training.
