Queensland Onsite Traffic Management Assessments

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland will be conducting traffic management assessments between March and May this year with inspectors visiting construction workplaces, as well as other industries, wherever mobile plant such as forklifts, elevating work platforms and cranes are in operation as well as other vehicles such as cars and trucks.

The aim of the campaign is to highlight the risks of interaction between mobile plant/vehicles and people on work sites. Inspectors will be helping identify effective traffic management plans.

This is a particularly important issue given that 12 workers were killed in incidents involving moving vehicles or plant equipment between 2009 and 2014. During that time there also 947 workers’ compensation claims for serious injuries accepted.
