RIIGOV401D Apply, monitor and report on compliance systems
RIICWD503D Prepare work zone traffic management plan
This qualification will enable participants to create a traffic management plan
as well as design, select and modify Traffic Control Plans (TCPs),
also known as Traffic Control Guidance Schemes (TCGSs) and conduct inspections.
Participants will be required to complete a booking form prior to training.
On this form participants can indicate whether or not they require further
assistance due to any LLN issues. This is most important so that the trainer/assessor
can implement any processes prior to the day’s training.
Participants will be required to develop two TCPs.
DELIVERY AND ASSESSMENT METHODS:
Training Day 1 – Participants to attend a pre-arranged training course that consists of a theory component that will incorporate the TCPs that have been developed by the participant.
Training Day 2 – Theory component continues focusing on the development of TMPs. This will be followed by a written theory assessment.
Training Day 3 – Participants will be set an assignment and given two (2) weeks to complete the work. The assignment will be to develop a complete TMP for a simulated project.
The assessor will review the portfolio of evidence for each participant and will make a summative evaluation.
· Prepare a Work Zone Traffic Management Plan (TMP)
· Collect all required information about a given roadwork project to enable the preparation of a TCGS/TCP
· Design a TCGS/TCP based on risk assessment, statutory and regulatory requirements, standards, road authority requirements and project brief
· Select and modify a TCGS/TCP based on risk assessment, statutory and regulatory requirements ,standards, road authority requirements and project brief
· Draw up a TCGS/TCP to recognise other graphical representations such as pedestrian movement plans, vehicle movement plans and notification of authorities
· Determine the recommended spacing between signs and traffic control devices in line with standards, measure width of trafficable surface, calculate edge clearances to barriers, cones and work personnel
· Incorporate Environmental Management Plan (EMP)
· Conduct an onsite check and inspection of the plan and to identify any unexpected hazards/risks
· Identify approvals required: identify approval agencies, types of approvals for roadway access, railway reserve access, authority to install signs on roads, variation to standards
· Understand speed, environment, type and class of vehicles, traffic density, sight lines, environmental condition, weather patterns and surface type
· Monitor and interpret control systems to apply to the drawing, selection and design
· Use approved methods and follow recognised local legislation
· Use the site/location assessment, distinguish topographical landmarks and carry out authorised risk control
· Collate traffic volume data type and class of vehicles
· Determine lane capacity, road network performance and lane closure restrictions
· Identify impacts from any concurrent or adjacent works
· Identify times and dates of any planned public events that may result in increased or redistributed traffic patterns
· Identify affected stakeholders and type of notification required and prepare notifications
Must hold a current Yellow Card or the new Implement Traffic Control Plans qualification
3 consecutive days plus pre-course evidence gathering and post course assignment completion
