The Lower Order Road Design Guidelines has been developed to assist practitioners with a risk-based approach for the design and construction of lower order assets held by local government in Queensland. As the lower order road network accounts for over 70% local and state controlled networks throughout Queensland, this approach allows stakeholders to maximise the return on funds invested. To assist with the implementation of these guidelines, a training program has been developed that pro...
Engineers and professionals working in local government perform a vital role in the delivery of services to their communities. These roles are quite different to private sector counterparts given the complex and ever changing regulatory environment of local government. Decisions are subjected to a high level of scrutiny with those responsible held to a very high standard by their communities.
The role of a Supervisor in the Civil or Public Works sectors requires a broad range of knowledge and skills. Not only does the supervisor need specific technical skills, they must also be skilled at planning, scheduling, estimation, logistics and project management. They must also be able to communicate, lead and develop people, maintain harmony and efficiency, while maintaining safety on the worksite. This workshop series focuses on the development of management, supervisory and technic...
The Type A, B & D sediment basin design course has been developed to support the draft Appendix B (IECA, 2016) document and updated State Planning Policy (Qld). The 1 day course is focussed at practitioners responsible for the design and/or construction of sediment basins. The program will provide attendees with valuable design, construction and operational insight into sediment basins including the newly adopted Type A & B basins. Aspects covered will include how to size sediment basin...
There are situations where the application of higher order road design principals become impractical or even unachievable due to a combination of constraints. “All road design is a compromise between the ideal and what is a reasonable outcome eg in terms of cost, safety, driver expectation, economic drivers, environmental impacts and social issues” (Transport Association of Canada – adopted by Queensland TMR). Austroads has provided guiding principles for designers and engineers to enable...
Many people don’t make a conscious decision to become a leader. As they gain experience and expertise within their chosen discipline, their skills are demonstrated and recognised. They find themselves in a position of leadership. Succeeding in a leadership role can be a challenge, requiring new perspectives, another area of knowledge, different skillsets and personality traits. Success will often require making decisions, not based on logic and analysis but utilising the ‘soft skills’ of ...
The Erosion & Sediment Control Level 3 course will provide attendees with the opportunity to improve their decisionmaking process with regards to erosion and sediment management at all stages of the project from concept through to completion. Participants will gain knowledge and skills to develop and/ or assess an Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) plan against the requirements of the IECA 2008 “Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control” guideline. This course will also address ...
The Erosion and Sediment Control Level 2 course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to assess, identify and comply with requirements related to managing Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) on their worksites. The content of this course is based on the “Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control” (IECA, 2008) and will provide practical instruction on current best practice requirements, compliance requirements along with an appreciation of how to manage the risk ...
The Erosion and Sediment Control Level 1 course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to assist them with installing and maintaining various erosion, sediment and drainage control measures onsite and comply with project and legislative requirements surrounding Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC). The content of this course is based on the “Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control” (IECA, 2008) and has been designed to provide practical instruction on how to imp...
Road Safety Audits are a pro-active approach to road safety, forming an integral part of the safe system approach at all stages of the road construction and maintenance process. IPWEAQ is offering a one-day workshop that has been developed to provide attendees with the opportunity to refresh their knowledge and skills for conducting or responding to a Road Safety Audit. This program will reference the Austroads Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Road Safety Audit, utilising case studie...
