TMS offers an extensive range of training courses in the field of Road Safety and Traffic Management. All courses offer a 'hands on' approach to training and are recognised for CPD by the IHE and CIHT
Local highway authorities have a responsibility to ensure that those carrying out safety inspections are trained, qualified and competent.
Highway safety inspectors perform an invaluable role in detecting safety defects on the highway and prioritising them for repair: it is essential that they are appropriately trained to enable them to do so competently and with confidence. It is equally important that the appropriate level of training has been provided, so that local highway authorities can successfully defend claims for compensation arising from accidents involving highway defects.
The fully-revised 4-day modular training course now offered by TMS incorporates all the changes in the recently published code of practice, Well-managed Highway Infrastructure (2016) and is approved by the IHE Inspectors Board, as well as having the accreditation of LANTRA Awards. The course is intended for both newly-appointed and experienced local authority highway safety inspectors. It provides the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfil the role of highway safety inspector and provides an opportunity for delegates to demonstrate their competency and achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
 Well-managed Highway Infrastructure (2016), paragraph A.5.5.7: Recommendation 15 of Well-managed Highway Infrastructure (2016): Recommendation 10 of Highway Infrastructure Asset Management (2013)
This course is designed to fulfil the initial training requirements of local authority highway inspectors and to satisfy the requirements of the IHE certification scheme, which will ultimately allow successful delegates to be entered on the National Register of Highway Inspectors.
This four day course follows the IHE approved syllabus and is delivered in seven distinct taught modules, each concluded by a short written assessment. In addition, delegates' ability to identify, evaluate and report highway defects will be assessed in a practical scenario. The modules are as follows:
Module 1 - Highway Law
Module 2 – Inspection Policies and Procedures
Module 3 - Material Recognition & Measurement
Module 4 - Defect & Hazard Recognition
Module 5 - Health & Safety / Risk assessment
Module 6 – Safety at Street Works and Roadworks
Module 7 – On-site Inspection Assessment
Module 8 - Claims Investigation
Delegates completing this course and passing all the assessments will receive a Certificate of Training, accredited by Lantra Awards.
Successful completion of the course will allow delegates to register on the IHE National Register of Highway Inspectors and claim credit for progression towards an Engineering Technician qualification.
This course can also be delivered in-house at your offices or a venue arranged by you, this can often work out more cost effective if you have several members of staff you would like to be trained at any one time.
