I don't work in traffic control but have been told I need to obtain a SafeWork NSW Traffic Control Work Training (TCWT) Card, what do I need to do?
From 1 July 2020 , Traffic Control Work Training will become part of the Work Health and Safety Act and the inclusion will make the completion of training a legislated obligation.
This means that workers in varying industries such as manufacturing, retail and construction will now be required to obtain a TCWT.
For example : A supermarket with a loading dock that is accessed via a public road. The supermarket worker will be required to hold a TCWT card to be able to direct traffic to allow the truck to reverse into the loading dock.
For example : a worker may be required to hold a TCWT on a construction site where vehicles / trucks are accessing via a public road and traffic is needed to be stopped to allow vehicles in and out of the site.
Training and assessment must be undertaken with a SafeWork NSW Authorised Registered Training Organisation.
