  • Implementation, understanding of the limits of equipment and methods
  • Interpret information as constructed
  • Provides guidance to less experienced staff
  • Completes quality assurance documentation and record keeping
  • Implements ITP requirements
  • Producing method statements or understanding how they are produced
  • Understand temporary works and, where applicable, take on the role of a TWS/TWC (temporary works coordinator) – You do not need to be a certified TWC
