This publication sets out the statutory requirements for signing, lighting, and guarding at street works and road works. This is the core reference manual for utility companies, local authorities, street work contractors and others whose day-to-day business involves street works (works by statutory undertakers and other utility companies etc) and road works (works to maintain or repair road infrastructure). The code, which covers all of the UK and includes national variations, is now compulsory for highway/road authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It applies to all single carriageway roads and dual carriageways with a speed limit of 40 mph or less. The code is now divided into three parts: Basic Principles, Operations, and Equipment and Vehicles; site layout diagrams have been redrawn to make them easier to understand. There is: increased emphasis on using risk assessment and guidance on what to consider in such assessments; strengthened guidance on providing for pedestrians and cyclists and new guidance on traffic control measures related to road closures, one-way working and temporary road obstructions; enhanced advice on other traffic control measures including works near tramways and railways, and mobile/short duration works; and updated advice on high visibility clothing and the signing and conspicuity requirements for work vehicles. Effective from 1 October 2014 when it will supersede the 2001 edition (ISBN 9780115519581).
This title sets out the statutory requirements for signing, lighting and guarding excavations and other street works on all roads except motorways and dual carriageways with hard shoulders. Although the code is directed primarily at the operative, supervisors and managers have an important reponsibility to ensure that all street and road works and operatives are safe. This is a reference manual for utility companies, local authorities, street work contractors and others whose day-to-day business involves street work.
Roadwork Theory and Practice gives the essential information needed by every road worker, highway technician, incorporated, graduate or chartered engineer, not only by explaining the theory of road construction and its associated activities, but by illustrating its application with practical working methods that are in use in everyday engineering practice. As such, it successfully bridges the gap so often found between civil engineering theory and the day-to-day work of a highways engineer. Now in its fifth edition, this classic textbook has been fully revised in line with recent changes to EU standards, legislation, terminology and specifications. The new edition now includes end of chapter review questions and references for further reading. Students will find this text fully caters for the requirements of BTEC National and NVQ qualifications in construction, civil engineering and highways maintenance. In addition, content has been matched to the specifications of the new Higher Nationals in Civil Engineering from Edexcel. Professionals will find the new edition to be an invaluable up-to-date reference source, especially of relevance to recent graduates new to the work place.
Paving the way sets out an agenda for improving the most neglected element in the built environment - the street. Clean, safe and attractive streets in which people, not cars, are paramount help to bind communities together and contribute to wider social objectives such as reducing traffic accidents and crime levels. This study for CABE and ODPM by Alan Baxter & Associates, highlights significant barriers in the institutional, management and policy framework which inhibit the creation of streets for multiple uses. The challenge for government, urban designers, highway engineers and local authorities is to change ingrained attitudes and cultures that fail to treat streets as quality places in themselves.
This NEBOSH-endorsed textbook is matched to the latest syllabus of the National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health. Within the construction industry the need for specialist health and safety training is high due to the high risks involved. This is reflected in recent legislation such as CDM 2007 and explains the consistent demand for courses and learning materials. The text is easy to read, highly illustrated in full color, and supported with checklists, report forms and record sheets used currently in the industry. Students are supported with end-of-chapter questions, a study skills chapter and specimen assignments including specimen answers. As NEBOSH actively grow their qualifications internationally, demand for this book and it’s sister titles continues to increase overseas. High growth markets are the Middle East, Malaysia, India and China.
This document provides guidance for those responsible for the design of temporary traffic management arrangements which should be implemented to facilitate maintenance activities or in response to temporary situations. It contains advice relating to traffic safety measures, and the identity and location of the traffic signs needed to guide road users, including pedestrians, safely past obstructions in temporary situations. It is structured to facilitate and reflect the design process for temporary traffic management, from the initial broad brief to details of signing provision. It raises the principal issues that need to be considered in temporary traffic management design and provides advice about their resolution. The document deals with the design of temporary traffic management arrangements on single carriageway roads and dual carriageway roads separately. The design guidance is illustrated by the inclusion of sample plans. This edition supersedes the 2006 edition (ISBN 9780115527388)
