What is Traffic Control Safety?
In essence, traffic control, also known as traffic management, refers to the supervision of vehicles, pedestrians, and other road users, to ensure safety and road efficiency. Traffic control measures are implemented to manage traffic flow and improve the safety of road users. Typically, these are things such as:
- Traffic lights
- And more…
When there’s a disruption (work zone, event etc.), temporary traffic control measures will need to be incorporated to ensure that traffic continues to run smoothly.
This is where a traffic control safety plan comes into play.
Creating a Traffic Control Safety Plan
A traffic control safety plan takes into account all road users that could be affected by work sites or events that cause disruption to the traffic flow. This ranges from cars and trucks to cyclists and pedestrians. As a result, a traffic control safety plan is designed to improve the safety of all persons within the vicinity of the site.
In order to create an effective plan, you will first need to assess and evaluate the risks and hazards involved in relation to traffic flow. The traffic control safety plan should then address these risks and provide recommendations for minimising or eliminating the risks altogether. Ideally, it should outline temporary traffic control measures and how these will be implemented and maintained, including:
- Speed limits
- Barrier systems
- And more…
