Establishing a Safe Construction Site and Avoiding Vehicle Accidents

There are measures to take in order to avoid construction site vehicle accidents:

  • Establish a traffic plan for the site.
  • Ensure that all visiting drivers report to site management before entering the site.
  • Segregate pedestrian and vehicle traffic routes. Provide a physical barrier and highly visible warning signs for drivers and pedestrians.
  • Where possible, segregate pedestrian and vehicle traffic routes. Provide a physical barrier for the segregation. If not, adequate warnings must be in place.
  • Consider a one-way traffic system to reduce the risk of collisions.
  • Check that suitable safety features are provided. Direction, speed limit and priority signs may be needed. Determine whether physical speed restrictions, such as speed bumps, are necessary. The edges of loading bays and pits must be marked and fitted with a barrier.
