  • Know your Ground – working safely near underground apparatus.
  • Safety for All – an overview of how signage and guarding can affect those with disabilities or those using alternative travel arrangements (also available online - https://vimeo.com/376841696)

Details of which notifications must be recorded on the Scottish Road Works Register (SRWR) are described in detail in the relevant codes of practice and advice notes, however, the notifications/transactions each organisation must review have not been explicitly described. This document explains the requirement for each organisation to comply with their statutory duties/best practice when reviewing and monitoring notifications & transactions from other organisations.

A Commissioner Direction on entering personal information into the SRWR has been issued.  This direction has been issued following discussions at RAUC(S) and Area RAUC; it defines the appropriate place for contact details to be recorded in the SRWR.
