In January 2019, the Swedish Transport Administration tightened up the skills requirements for personnel working on the roads. The new contractual demands TDOK 2018:0371 form part of the work aimed at improving safety at workplaces situated in traffic, as well as reducing the number of accidents.
Work on the Road – Level 1:
Basic skills for all personnel who will be carrying out roadworks or similar where the Swedish Transport Administration is the client. This level must be updated after 15 months.
Work on the Road – Level 2:
Skills requirements for drivers of all types of road maintenance vehicles, service and commercial vehicles. Provides authorisation to equip and distinguish your own vehicle. Personnel possessing skills according to level 2 may place road signs on the ground and assist with marking work under the supervision of personnel possessing skills according to level 3A. We run levels 1 and 2 as a combined course. This level must be updated after 5 years.

This course is aimed at employers, managers, supervisors, safety officers and other personnel involved in systematic work environment management activities.
Level 1 must be updated after 15 months, and levels 2 and 3 after 5 years.
Prior knowledge requirements
According to the Swedish Transport Administration’s procurement conducted on 1 October 2006, the following training requirements still apply when an individual is working on or adjacent to its roads:
- Safety on the road (after the first hour worked)
- Environment (after 100 hours worked)
- Help on the road (after 100 hours worked)
- Marking officer (must always be on site during active work)
- Guard training (during work as a traffic guard/signal guard)
Registration is binding and the billing of course fees takes place within two weeks following registration. If you need to cancel your participation in the course, we have to receive the cancellation seven working days prior to the start of the course.
In the event there are insufficient registered participants or in case of some other valid reason, such as the course leader becoming ill, we will get back to you with alternative course dates. If you cannot find a suitable date and you are a group of around ten people, we are happy to consider an alternative arrangement specifically for you.
