Do you need any form of training before you can set out traffic management signs and cones on a public highway in order to carry out tree works?

Do you need any form of training before you can set out traffic management signs and cones on a public highway in order to carry out tree works?


We strongly advise that tree work contractors undertake appropriate training for all activities they carry out in order to comply with legislation. In this case the New Roads and Street Works Act along with relevant guidance such as the Safety at Street Works and Road Works Code of Practice would apply. Additionally, all tree work falls under the general provisions of the Health and Safety at Work Act which means that others should not be put at risk by tree work operations.
