Triple accreditation
  • Highway Electrical Registration Scheme (HERS) Gold Award
  • Highway Electrical Skills Academy (HESA) Approved Training Provider
  • National Plant Operators Registration Scheme (NPOS) Approved Training Provider

These awards demonstrate VolkerHighways’ competence and commitment to delivering all highway construction works to the highest standards against industry benchmarks for quality and safety.

Gold HERS Status

Granted by the Highway Electrical Association (HEA) the Gold status demonstrates VolkerHighways’ unwavering commitment to delivering consistently the highest possible standards of compliance in relation to highway electrical works, including street lighting and electric vehicle charge point delivery.

As one of only a handful of tier one contractors achieving Gold accreditation, we have demonstrated our assurance to adhering to the strict standards of ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and National Highway Sector Scheme 8. 

HESA Approved Training Provider

Accredited through Lantra, VolkerHighways is now an approved Highway Electrical Skills Academy (HESA) provider, enabling the self-delivery of mandatory HERS training internally to our own direct teams and approved supply chain partners. This further improves existing high standards of delivery within the highway electrical sector.

NPOS Approved Training Provider

VolkerHighways has joined NPOS as an Approved Training Provider to deliver construction-related courses, such as manual handling. This status enhances our training centre facility further, enabling us to deliver construction related training to our entire workforce, including the highway maintenance sector.
