Traffic management and control is the safe movement of motorists and pedestrians around worksites using temporary traffic signage, delineators, arrow boards and accredited traffic controllers. Traffic management, planning and control is required by any business or corporation planning to operate on or near roads or pedestrian access ways. The practice of traffic management requires supervising the existing traffic environment to allow contractors to perform work duties safely, without the possibility of incident or injury through conflict with traffic flows. Generally control measures comprise of isolating the work area from traffic flows, traffic lane closures, traffic lane diversions or road closures. Depending on what the project requires implementing:
- Traffic management equipment hire
- Traffic management planning (TMP)
- Traffic management traffic control and labour hire
- Traffic management risk assessment and consulting
BTM’s traffic management is a smartest approach to managing your worksite. It greatly reduces the risk to your personnel and allows them to perform their work duties without having to worry about traffic flows travelling through the work area. Federal and state government legislation requires all employers and employees, including contractors and other work site personnel, to manage the work site in a safe manner to protect all work site personnel and the general public from the risk of possibility of accidents and I or injuries. Traffic management is an essential requirement for works that occur adjacent to or within 6.0m of any carriageway, or on any carriageway. Failure to meet these conditions may be considered to be a breach of the OSH Act and Regulations, as all personnel are required to implement safe work practices, as much as is reasonably practicable.
BTM’s traffic service personnel are trained by accredited training providers to implement procedures and manage any risks associated with the existing traffic environment. This includes performing on site risk analysis to determine the required treatments to mitigate such risks. Our goal is to reduce or eliminate the possibility of potential injuries or accidents to all work site personnel and the general public.
