NSW traffic control measures: Taking into the concerns:
Traffic Risks are increasing a lot day by day in NSW. Firstly one should find out what can cause harm and identify the particular areas where vehicles and pedestrians can interact. Security footage will be really useful when blind spots are there or areas of poor visibility are there. All the traffic management problems should also be accessed as well as the incidents and injury records should also be accessed.
How you can control the risk depends on a risk assessment on the action? Loading, unloading and reversing often leads to the collision of the pedestrians and the vehicles. The pedestrian routes can be separated from the vehicle routes to prevent it completely. Physical barriers or even overhead walkways can be very useful.
Options to minimize risks:
Engineering controls are very useful. The sensing devices, forklifts, speed limiters or interlocked gates are helpful too. The hazard from the people can also be removed. The work activities and pedestrians should be away. Something safer should be given as a substitute. Pallet jacks or walker stackers can be really helpful. Warning signs and other administrative controls can also be used. Personal protective equipment like high visibility clothing can also be very beneficial. The availability and the suitability of the measures should also be taken into account. The control measures should also be checked regularly to understand the system of working.
The pedestrian and the vehicle should have the desired flow.
The interaction of the vehicles and the pedestrian should have a basic frequency.
The layout of walkways, signs, barriers should help in guiding the traffic around. It should work through the temporary hazard and the work site. The complex traffic situations in Australia will have to be managed by the people who hold responsibility for the traffic. The people can interact with the traffic and can even keep track of the responsibilities of the people to keep track of the traffic. The instructions and procedures for the traffic should also be taken into account that is used for an emergency. The representatives and the supervisors of the committee should definitely create some safety measures and a traffic management committee that shares the traffic routes as well as the working areas of the vehicles.
After work and monitoring:
After the Traffic Management Plan is made, it should definitely be reviewed and monitored and following the incident should definitely be really effective so that the traffic management consultation committee should monitor the plan. Health and safety management should be allocated and high impact traffic control barriers should be given. Clearly marked footpaths and walkways can also be done, by using lines painted on the ground as well as by using different coloured surfacing. Intersections and pedestrian routes should be marked and well lit and well maintained.
The vehicle routes, pedestrian crossings, parking areas, reversing vehicles, loading and unloading vehicles, signs, road markings, lighting, all should be taken into consideration so that accidents can be prevented the traffic management can be exercised properly.
