Consultation opens on TTM Credentials Framework

The transition to a more risk-based approach to Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) will require training and assessment that better reflects new competencies and ways of working that empower people to manage risk at TTM sites effectively.

The TTM Industry Steering Group (ISG) and the TTM Credentials Framework working group are currently consulting on a new Credentials Framework for the TTM industry.

The Framework is the foundation of a new training approach that will help us better manage safety and risk in our TTM activities. It responds to the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, Worksafe’s Keeping Healthy and Safe while working on the Road and Roadside (2022), the New Zealand Guide to Temporary Traffic Management and the end of the NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi warrant system.

The Framework has been developed to support PCBUs in their duty of care to ensure their people are trained and competent, and to provide stackable NZQA credentials. It will also help to align the TTM industry with other industries that operate under a vocational framework.

In short, it’s important and it’s important you have your say.

We’ve pulled together some information and resources so you can find out more about the Framework, why we need it, what it means for you, and how to have your say.

We also hosted two webinars, on Thursday 29 February and Tuesday 5 March, to help kick off the consultation.

Upcoming Q&A session - Wednesday 27 March

We recognise the Framework is a big change to the way we, as an industry, have managed training and assessment in the past and that there’s a lot of information to get your head around. 

We’re hosting an interactive Q&A session on Zoom on Wednesday 27 March to help answer any burning questions you might have about the Framework, how it’s different from what we have now, why we need it, what it means for you, and more.

If you already know what you’d like to know more about, you can submit your questions ahead of time here.

A separate Q&A session will be held on Zoom on Wednesday 27 March. This will be a good opportunity for anyone who finds themselves with questions as they work through their feedback. If you’d like to ensure you receive the invite to this session, please sign up for the ISG mailing list here.

Consultation closes on Friday 5 April 2024. Feedback will then be collated and shared via the TTM Industry Steering Group in due course.
