Many accidents at work are caused by on-site traffic. If you’ve been seriously injured in a collision with a lorry or a forklift truck, or any other sort of on-site vehicle in Ammanford, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to file a claim for accident at work compensation in Ammanford.
Important safety rules to consider, and where possible/practical, implement
It is very important to segregate pedestrians from moving traffic in the workplace as much as practically possible. Things like planning the flow of traffic in one direction only, trying to minimise or negate vehicles having to reverse, and ensuring that there are plenty of well lit, highly obvious pedestrian crossing places, are all important.
If the flow of traffic in constant, it may be necessary to introduce a traffic light system. It is also important to have an appropriate speed limit in place.
Educating visiting drivers in on-site traffic management
It’s also very important that all new, visiting drivers, who are not familiar with the layout of the site, or the rules and regulations that are in place, should be suitably inducted in health and safety procedures when they arrive at the entrance gate.
Making best use of appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
Any pedestrians who come into contact with on-site traffic, or who work outside, should be issued with hi-viz safety vests and/or jackets. If transitioning from the a noisy factory environment to the exterior, any protective hearing equipment must be removed, so that traffic noise and warning horns can be easily and clearly heard.
