TRAINING SPECIFICATION

Knowledge and understanding

Control measure element Learning outcome

Implement safe systems of work: Objects involved in a collision

Understand:

  • The term ‘street furniture’
  • How topography may affect the stability of an object involved in a collision
  • The procedures to be adopted when street furniture may affect operations at a road traffic incident
  • Which agencies may be able to provide assistance to stabilise or move heavy objects involved in a collision?
  • What to consider when moving or stabilising objects involved in a collision

Practical application

Control measure element Learning outcome

Implement safe systems of work: Objects involved in a collision
