Detail of outcome
Following concerns raised at consultation, the government has decided not to proceed with proposals to remove the current requirement for street works operatives and supervisors to hold specific qualifications. Further details of the decision feature in this response.
We are inviting views on proposals arising from the Red Tape Challenge to remove the current requirement for street works operatives and supervisors to hold specific qualifications, and instead allow employers to determine suitable training. The government believes this would end the inappropriate ‘layering’ of regulations, given that safety and reinstatement standards are already regulated by statutory codes of practice.
