AGS publishes highway working guidance

truck road UK

The Association of Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental Specialists (AGS) has published its guidance for working on highways and truck roads.

Aimed at geotechnical and geo-environmental engineers, the guidance highlights the hazardous working environment and the level of training and awareness of health and safety required. 

The AGS said: “Motorways are particularly dangerous for those working on foot because of the high speed of the traffic and the absence of any provision for pedestrians, who in normal circumstances are not allowed on the motorway at all.

“Geotechnical and geo-environmental engineers often need to work on roads for walkover surveys, ground investigation or earthworks repair work and may routinely be exposed to these hazardous environments.”

The free guidance is available here.
