Temporary Traffic Management
(LANTRA Awards - NHSS 12DM7)

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 IHT


A two-day course intended for all levels of management, client officers, technicians and anyone not actually involved in installing Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) who requires a knowledge of basic TTM practice on urban and rural roads.

The newly published Safety at Street Works and Road Works - A Code of Practice came into effect in October 2014. The revised course, based on the updated 'Red Book' is now available.

The attached article explains some of the changes, in particular the issue of competence and status of the NHSS training course with respect to it.
