We will soon launch several new workshops on Managing Risks on Lower Order Roads. Members would have received a complimentary copy of the Guidelines - which now includes an editable Hazard Treatment Evaluation Score Card - with their 2016-2017 membership renewal. Please complete the form (left) to register your interest for this 1-day course or contact Craig Moss.
The content of this course is based on the Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control (IECA, 2008) and has been designed to provide practical
instruction on how to implement control measures in an effective and compliant manner.
Bridges and other structures are crucial asset elements of the infrastructure network. It is essential that their condition is monitored and repairs are planned and completed in an efficient and timely manner. The systematic inspection, condition rating and monitoring of these assets are vital components to managing the lifecycle of these structures.
A Level 1 routine maintenance inspection is required to check the general serviceability of the structure, particularly for the safety of road users, and identify any emerging problems. A Level 2 condition rating inspection is a key step in assessing the effectiveness of past maintenance treatments and identifying current maintenance needs to assist in the forecasting future changes in condition and estimating future budget requirements of structures across the network.
Road Safety Audits offer a proactive approach to road safety, forming an integral part of the safe system approach at all stages of the road construction and maintenance process. IPWEAQ is offering a two-day workshop that has been developed to provide attendees with the knowledge and skills required when conduction or responding to a Road Safety Audit. This program will work through the Austroads Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Road Safety Audit, utilising case studies and practical exercises including day and night time inspections that will provide practitioners and decisionmakers with ways to formally address road safety issues before accidents occur.
The Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector in Australia has introduced some significant initiatives to ensure national training packages reflect the skills needs of industry. One of these initiatives was the establishment of an Industry Reference Committee (IRC) comprising representatives from peak bodies, employee associations as well individuals with specific technical expertise relevant to the sector. IPWEA has been recognised as a key industry body and is represented by Craig Moss. IPWEAQ's Director, Professional & Career Development.
The success of the IRC is dependent on ensuring the training packages developed are truly representative of our industry’s needs. We invite you to provide input by responding to the following question. Please also contact Craig directly on 3632 6805 to discuss the needs of your people and organisation.
