Worker Safety Public Roads Checklist (Australia) Mobile App
The national compliance campaign has been developed in response to series of incidents across Australia that have seen five workers die and 10 seriously injured while undertaking work on public roads.
How does it work?
Working on roads is an extremely dangerous activity. Factors such as high volumes of traffic, inadequate signage, poor traffic management and the use of powered mobile plant pose a high operational risk. The occupational safety and health laws require risk assessments to be carried out. The Worker Safety Public Roads Checklist (Australia) mobile app covers checklists for: risk management, training, consultation, traffic management, managing health and safety on site, short term works, fatigue, manual tasks and intermittent work and low impact works.
