Workzone Traffic Management
Road workers everywhere, everyday face all sort of hazards as they go about
their day-to-day business. These hazards can range from the movement of plant
and machinery in and around the work site, to road users travelling past and
choosing to ignore the temporary signs and devices displayed.
Road workers also require training and retraining in the correct type, placement
and size of temporary traffic control devices used at roadworks.
It is a legal requirement (Road Traffic Act, 1961) for persons working on or
near roads in South Australia to be trained in DTEI’s Workzone
Traffic Management Training Program. At all times whilst workers are present
at a site at least one worker must be trained.
At all times that workers are present at a work site, at least one worker must:
- have gained accreditation in the DPTI Workzone Traffic Management Training Course
- carry a card certifying accreditation in this course when engaged at a work area or work site
- undertake re-training in the DPTI Workzone traffic Management Training course every 5 years and
- undertake annual re-training in DPTI interactive CD-Rom entitled, The Road to Worker Safety.
