Our NRSWA Unit 01 Streetworks Course in Loughborough provides Operatives and Supervisors the knowledge they need to safely work around underground services.

NRSWA Unit 01 Streetworks Course in Loughborough

If your job calls for you to locate underground utilities as part of a road construction project you will need to make sure you are certified as stipulated in the New Roads and Streetworks Act of 1991. This goes for both Operatives and Supervisors. Being able to identify and avoid underground services is key to the successful performance of roadworks and our NRSWA Unit O1 Streetworks course in Loughborough provides the training you need to do just that.

Although it can be helpful if the candidate has some experience or familiarity with the CAT (Cable Avoidance Tool) it is not a prerequisite for taking this course. The NRSWA Unit O1 Streetworks course in Loughborough will cover the following topics of concern: 
  • How to correctly interpret site plans in order to identify underground services.
  • Best practices relative to excavating on a highway construction site.
  • Proper operation and maintenance of the CAT and related equipment.
  • Current health and safety regulations related to streetworks.
The NRSWA Unit 01 Streetworks course in Loughborough is a 1-day course divided into morning and afternoon sessions. As a general rule, the morning session covers theoretical issues related to working around underground services, while the afternoon session provides an opportunity for candidates to get some hands-on experience handling relevant equipment such as the CAT. 
At the end of the course, participants will need to take and pass a short exam testing their retention of the information imparted during the day. The test comprises 20 multiple-choice questions and you must answer at least 16 of the 20 (80%) correctly in order to obtain certification. Certification will be issued by City & Guilds, Lantra, the CABWI or other authorised body and be valid for 5 years.
