Minimum 1 day of 6 learning hours
The purpose of this course is to ensure road marking operatives have a relevant understanding of COSHH relating to the specialist materials used in the road marking industry.
The scope of this standard covers:
- a brief overview of the law
- definitions of hazard and risk
- explain the duties of the employer and the employee
- to demonstrate the difference between MSDS and a COSHH assessment
- establish the priorities of action when dealing with spills
- to explain the importance of recording evidence after a spill
- explain the correct manner of disposing of waste materials correctly
Note: Due to the specialist nature of the road marking industry and the materials used this standard aims to ensure operatives understand the inherent dangers and how to mitigate against spillages.
Training delivered against this standard would be relevant to the following occupational group(s):
There are no candidate pre-requisites as part of this standard. However, knowledge of terminology and techniques of road marking activities would be beneficial.
As a minimum, course instructors must be able to demonstrate that, in relation to this standard, they have:
- a train the trainer or instructional techniques course certificate
- successfully completed training to this standard
- at least 2 years relevant industrial experience
- a verifiable CV.
The following methods may be used in the delivery of this standard:
All materials and equipment must be of a suitable quality and quantity for candidates to achieve learning outcomes and must comply with relevant legislation.
The class size and candidate/instructor ratio must allow training to be delivered in a safe manner and enable candidates to achieve the learning outcomes.
This standard is considered to contain 51% or more theoretical training.
For the successful completion of training, candidates must complete an end of course practical assessment and knowledge test that measures the learning outcomes and has a pass or fail criteria.
Quality assurance against this standard will require initial approval of the training organisation and their content mapped to the standard.
CITB will also conduct an approval intervention, either desk-based or centre visit, to ensure the training organisation can meet the requirements of the training standard.
Approved training organisations (ATOs) will be required to present information on records of training and assessment upon request to CITB for desk based analysis. They will also be visited annually by the CITB quality assurance team.
Health & Safety Executive (HSE), other relevant codes of practice or industry card scheme criteria recommend that the candidate completes a refresher of his/her training (i.e. to ensure their knowledge and/or skills are up to date) every 5 years.
Either on request or in 3 years from approval date.
