Overview

Who is SA022 - Safe Location and Avoidance training for?

This accreditation is aimed at those who need to safely locate and avoid underground services such as gas, electricity, mains water, sewage and telecommunications as part of their job.

What will I learn on a SA022 course?

The SA022 - Safe Location and Avoidance course provides learners with the knowledge and skills of planning, safely locating and avoiding underground services.

This includes training on physical identification methods of underground services (e.g. site visual surveys and interpreting any drawings) and also using cable avoidance tools and accessories to detect, trance and mark clearly where services have been found, preventing risk of harm to people on site and damage to the services.

This accreditation ensures that delegates are suitably trained and accredited to the National Occupational Standard (NOS) when locating and avoiding underground services.

Safe Location and Avoidance Learning Objectives:

  • The purpose of safe location and avoidance
  • Understand service drawings
  • Plan for safe location and avoidance
  • Identify, detect and mark out underground services
  • Methods of safe excavation of underground services

Streetworks

Please be aware the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) requires at least one person on site to hold a Street Works card to work on the highway.

This Smart Awards accreditation is based on a pre-requisite that any work on the highway requires appropriate Street Works accreditation to be held by an individual working on site, and that this individual is qualified to check that the planned provision of footways, traffic lanes and safety zones determined by the site survey meets with the requirements of the site location and approved procedures and practices required by the NRSWA 1991.

Some companies’ policies may vary where more than one person on site is required to hold a valid Street Works card.
