Street Works (England) (City & Guilds 6167) qualifications are for those carrying out and/or monitoring works on the highway, including locating underground apparatus, signing, lighting and guarding, and excavation and reinstatement of the highway.

The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991
The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA) requires work involving the installation, renewal, maintenance and inspection of underground apparatus in the highway to be under the control of competent persons. In order to comply with the Act, undertakers must ensure that a person holding an appropriate Operative qualification is present on the site at all times when work activities are in progress. In addition, to comply with the Act the execution of street works is supervised by someone holding a Supervisor’s qualification that covers the work being undertaken.
