Traffic Management Assessment & Plan

There is a risk of death and injury in workplaces where vehicles, mobile plant and pedestrians share the same work areas or traffic routes.

Traffic management involves the safe movement of vehicles (such as cars, trucks and buses), mobile powered plant (such as forklifts) and pedestrians within, through and around sites where work is carried out.

Assessment

Every client and every situation is different when it comes to Traffic management. Our highly trained consultants will provide a thorough review of your needs with consideration to:

Types of vehicles and mobile plant accessing the site:

  • Pedestrian access for people with a disability (e.g. wheelchairs).
  • Work involving road closures.
  • Environmental factors (e.g. road surfaces, shade, glare, lighting, weather and noise).
  • Unexpected or changing circumstances (e.g. queuing of vehicles, peak traffic times, bottlenecks, intersections and blind corners).
  • Work area design and layout.
  • Overhead electrical lines and structures.
  • Whether loading zones, parking and reversing areas are adequate and what happens with overflow traffic.
  • Drug and alcohol policies and procedures.
  • Work demands and fatigue management (e.g. shift work).
  • Other traffic issues commonly encountered or reported by workers, pedestrians or visiting drivers.

Plan

Planning is the first step to ensure work is done safely. A traffic management plan details how the risks associated with plant and vehicle traffic are being managed in a workplace. Plans should be regularly monitored and reviewed to ensure they are effective and account for changes in the workplace.
