Mark Armstrong and Nigel Griffith attended Auckland Motorways recent ‘Safe Working on the Road Induction,’ a mandatory workshop required by the Auckland Motorway Alliance for anyone who has to work on the motorway network.

Mark thought the content was excellent and detailed, “There was time to discuss issues and examples raised by attendees as a group, providing answers on what to do and what not to do in the future.”

Key areas covered included Health and Safety responsibilities both as an employer and as an employee; qualifications, powers and responsibilities of the STM; emergency incident procedures; Traffic Management Plans and why they are important; minimum levels of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required; garments and types of flashing beacons allowed; safety of plant left on site or on the road side out of hours; mobile and special operations and Operational Requirements and Auckland Traffic Operations Control ( ATOC)
