  • To comply with all legislative requirements, company policy and procedures at all times
  • To return all paperwork and associated documentation applicable to works at the end of the working day – or at the earliest opportunity when working away
  • Comply with Safety Inspectors or Investigators requests
  • Undertake work as per instructions of the Depot Manager and as per training, documented safety systems and quality, environmental, safety and health standards

Skills and Knowledge Requirements:

  • Good working knowledge of highways and drainage systems
  • Prior experience of working in a similar environment desirable but not essential
  • Operations of High Pressure Water Jetting and Drain Cleaning
