Worksafe has released two new best practice guidelines on Site Traffic Management and Seatbelts. Worksafe consulted with industry last year on the draft guidelines via associations such as ShopCare.
Site Traffic Management

- Work site traffic can be a major cause of harm to workers and other people at work sites.
- Businesses have a duty to keep people safe around vehicles and mobile plant at work sites.
- Where more than one business shares a work site, they must work together to manage the risks related to work site traffic.
- Businesses must consult with their workers when deciding how to manage the risks related to work site traffic.
