The Welsh Government has launched a consultation on possible changes to The Street Works (Qualifications of Supervisors and Operatives) Regulations 1992. This is a fulfilment of one of the aims in its National Approach for Road Works and Street Works in Wales which set out our priorities for reviewing the management of road works and street works in Wales.
The Welsh Government is committed to review the training and qualifications of road workers to ensure the highest standards of training are maintained in Wales. This consultation document sets out an approach for significantly improving the training requirements and reviewing the regulations for training and accreditation which include opening up the street works market to other awarding bodies, introducing re-assessment in Wales and changing the format of the units and certificates in line with changes made in England and Scotland.
