Health & Safety - Working on Highways and Verges (CPD)

 

£249+VAT (APSE members) £429+VAT (Non-members)

 

APSE is pleased to be bringing our popular Health & Safety on Highways and Verges course to our virtual classroom.  This course was designed in response to network query requests from councils seeking guidance for roads, highways, street scene and transport. The updated content will also help local authorities to assess risk and adopt safe practice in their R2W plans, operating within Government Covid-19 guidelines.

In addition to new concerns and requirements, accidents to workers and road users on the highway regularly make headlines and attract investigation and enforcement action.  Litter picking, mowing, treework, dealing with emergencies, removing road kill and any other work on or near the highway are all high risk activities and incidents can have far reaching consequences for local authorities and individuals.

These all place significant responsibilities on local authorities to ensure competence at all levels, and this course provides an opportunity for those managing or delivering these activities to step back from the pressures of their ‘day job’ and take an overview and an update on key issues, together with sharing experiences and good practice.

 This course is now being delivered over two half-days to provide flexibility, but can be tailored to individual Authority's requirements.

 

This is course is a masterclass. 

 

The sessions will cover:

  • The issues working on high speed dual and single carriage ways
  • Understanding signage
  • Visibility
  • Litter picking risk assessments
  • Community clean ups and volunteers
  • Service specific hazards and risks - mitigation and management
  • Sources of advice, guidance and training
