The National Utilities Code : what staff on-site should know


Are you complying with the National Utilities Code?   It is compulsory for all utility operators, road managers and rail operators, but many organisations are not using it properly.

This course is designed specifically for contractors and utility network staff who are working in the road or rail corridor, installing or maintaining utility assets. 

The course focuses on those parts of the Code that apply directly to utility operators and their agents as they work on-site. It also covers the handbook for workers in the road corridor: Think Safe, Work Safe, Home Safe.  

Note: This course does not include all chapters of the Code.
