RSA - Training Course: safety measures at roadworks sites in built-up areas and on major roads

On 1 January 2001, MVAS 99 was published -  the code of practice regarding specialist knowledge necessary for implementing safety measures at roadworks.

With the issue of the code of practice, the specifications with respect to the awarding of contracts for construction work were tightened. Therefore, specialist training is needed to make sure that the people responsible are proficient in implementing safety measures at roadworks sites. RSA stipulates that a certificate of proficiency is mandatory, above all for anyone in charge of such roadworks. It must be issued explicitly in that person's name and is valid for five years. The contracting body also requires training.
