SPRAYED CONCRETE OPERATOR CERTIFICATION

In order to increase safety, enhance quality and minimize sprayed concrete waste, Trafikverket (The Swedish Transport Administration) requires all operators that will perform concrete spraying in the their major tunnel projects e.g. E4 Stockholm Bypass (E4 Förbifart Stockholm) and West Link (Västlänken) to be certified. Trafikverket will certify all operators that goes through and passes a training and assessment program including both a Theory part and a Practical part, as well as hands in a proof of spraying experience. The certificate is valid for 5 years.
