Roles in Traffic Management
Our Responsibility To ensure your safety. To design a working, flowing and safe traffic management plan that takes safety and efficiency into account. To supply you with the PPE, vehicles and safety mechanisms you need to stay safe.
What do we mean by traffic management?
Warehouse traffic includes any vehicle (including forklifts, cars, trucks, etc.) that have a potential to come into contact with employees or visitors.
Controlling Traffic Risks
When pedestrians have to work with vehicles: Any non-essential staff are prohibited, especially when items are being loaded or unloaded. Adhere to the signs designating who should be where. Wear high-visibility clothing. When vehicles are in motion, stand clear and make your co-workers are as well.
For Plant Operators Plant operators should not prepare to load or unload until the loading area is completely clear.
Drivers should be told immediately when the plant operator has completed their task and when it is clear for them to return to their vehicle.
Whenever possible, use low-speed, stable loadshifting equipment as opposed to the heavy duty powered mobile plants or pallet movers. If you can use something lightweight to get the job done, do it!
