CABWI Streetworks Training Northern Ireland

Under the New Roads and Street Works Act (1991) (NRSWA), the installation, renewal, maintenance and inspection of underground apparatus in any street or roads must be under the control of competent people.

This means that street works will be supervised by a qualified street works ‘supervisor’. In addition, whether the street is excavated or not, a ‘trained operative’, with an ‘operative’ qualification must be present on site at all times when the work is in progress. One person may not cover the operative and supervisor roles for a site at the same time.

If you are working or supervising works in the highway, you could be required to hold one or more of the Street Works qualifications, depending on your job role. There are sixteen units of competence for operatives and supervisors. Nine units are applicable to operatives and eight to supervisors. One of these units (Unit 1) applies to both groups.

The Streetworks Qualification units are broken down as follows;

Operatives units

Unit 001 Location and avoidance of underground apparatus
Unit 002 Signing, lighting and guarding
Unit 003 Excavation in the road/highway
Unit 004 Reinstatement and compaction of backfill materials
Unit 005 Reinstatement of sub-base and road-base in non-bituminous materials
Unit 006 Reinstatement of cold-lay bituminous materials
Unit 007 Reinstatement of hot-lay bituminous materials
Unit 008 Reinstatement of concrete slabs
Unit 009 Reinstatement of modular surfaces and concrete footways
