The Signing, Lighting and Guarding training course aims is to provide Operatives with the skills and knowledge to perform their respective duties when signing, lighting and guarding as per the standards prescribed by the Awarding Bodies and in-line with the New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA), in order to safeguard themselves and others.
As of the 1st January 1993, new legislation in the form of the New Roads and Street Works Act (1991), made it mandatory that only appropriately qualified employees could work on a public street or road.
The NRSWA 01 (old Unit 2) Signing, Lighting and Guarding course has been designed for Operatives who need to erect signing, lighting and guarding for work on the roadways and highways. This course will cover the use of relevant equipment on the roads including stop/go boards, portable traffic lights and traffic control signs and the practical is delivered on a Live Road.
By the end of the Signing, Lighting and Guarding training course operatives will be able to:

The NRSWA 01 (old Unit 2) Signing, Lighting and Guarding) training course will be delivered with a high proportion of discussion and assessments.
The Operatives assessment consists of theory based and practical assessments.
