The continued successful collaboration between Kier and Chevron has proved itself once again by sponsoring a traffic management (TM) training initiative, devised to launch a new approach to how our employees will receive additional Traffic Management training.
The Project was designed to produce a series of short videos portraying our traffic management activities. The videos showcase current practice and new techniques and supported by commentary and frequently asked questions to assist those showing the videos.
The videos provide our workforce with the visual training guides that can be used during training, tool box talks and start of shift briefings, providing non-operational colleagues with baseline awareness training.
Filming took place Heyford Park Airfield near Bicester. The Area 3 and Area 9 TM teams hired the Airfield for an entire week of filming, utilising a section of airfield which is 1.77km in length — equivalent to a 6-lane motorway.
Representatives from the client and specialist industry groups such as the Road Worker Safety Forum and the Highways Term Maintenance Association were in attendance during filming of the new training videos to study the Kier and Chevron approach to workforce training. This enabled them to closely observe works that are not usually available for study or observation due to the high level of risk involved when working adjacent to live traffic.
Roadmarking specialists Wilson & Scott undertook the transformation of the airstrip by installing temporary markings to mimic the required road layouts.
