Working In Or Near Traffic Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Roadways can be dangerous places in which to work and require some form of temporary traffic management to control and divert vehicular traffic around a work area.
How does it work?
Working in traffic is especially hazardous for individuals and crews who are unprotected from oncoming or overtaking vehicles. Risks included cars and trucks losing control in work zones, workers stepping into traffic flow, blind spots in front and rear for large trucks, heavy equipment backing over workers, equipment overhanging from work areas, cranes hitting workers during operation, equipment dropping loads onto workers, and workers not visible at night. The Working In Or Near Traffic Toolbox Talk (UK) app Health And Safety At Work Act 1974 Section 7 places duties on employees to take reasonable care of their own health & safety, and that of anyone who could be adversely affected by their 'acts or omissions at work' and to co-operate with their employer in steps to meet legal requirements.
