Do you require a SWQR (Street Works) card? Then you’ll need to attend one of our Street Works Courses.
At Safety Training Solutions, every month we deliver a wide range of Street Works courses. Monthly we arrange the Street Works 5 Day Course (Operative or Supervisor) training, the Street Works Refresher (Operative & Supervisor), Location & Avoidance of Underground Apparatus and Signing , Lighting and Guarding. We either deliver these course when required at our training centre in Dingwall, just 15 minutes drive from Inverness or we can deliver this on site in the Highlands & Islands or anywhere across Scotland.
The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) requires that each set of street works has at least one operative with a prescribed Street Works qualification on site while works are taking place. It also requires that in most cases, the works are supervised by a person with a prescribed Street Works supervisor qualification (sites that only involve opening the street, e.g. lifting access covers, do not have to be supervised). The supervisor does not need to be on site at all times and can supervise more than one set of works.
If you do not curently have a SWQR card, you will be required to complete the 5 Day Initial Course for either Operatives or Supervisors. If you have a card that is expiring or has recently expired, then a Street Works Refresher can be attended to renew your SWQR card for another 5 years.
