From a legal point of view, then all employers are obligated to organise a construction site so that vehicles and pedestrians using the site can move around safely.
The routes around a site need to be suitable for the people or vehicles using them. They must be strategically placed for both vehicles and pedestrians to safely reach any destination required as part of their work.
A traffic management plan should be developed, implemented and monitored for all applicable sites. The traffic management plan should be communicated to all workers on site.
This toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces related to poor management of traffic. It looks at different aspects of traffic management and what to consider.
