Street Works & Roadworks
Streetworks and Road Works are a common risk found throughout the road network of the United Kingdom. There is an obligation to ensure that not only the supervisors and operatives are kept safe from their activities but also the public who come into direct contact with their work every day.
The Streetworks Code of practice is to help utility companies and highway authorities carry out signing, lighting and guarding of street works and road works. The code of practice applies on highways and roads, except all motorways and any dual carriageways with a speed limit of 50 mph or more.
