What Is Workplace Transport? Workplace transport is the movement of people and vehicles within the same area.
Why Is It Important? HSE Statistics • Over the past two years there have been 115 fatal injuries to workers as a result of workplace transport accidents. • HGV’s Forklift Trucks and wheeled tractors are the most commonly cited agents in fatal accidents • Forklift trucks account for approximately one quarter of all workplace transport major injuries to employees
Why Is It Important? The most common vehicle accidents in the work place are:- • people being hit by vehicles • people falling from vehicles • objects falling from vehicles on to people • vehicles toppling over
Stay Safe • Walk at a reasonable pace – NEVER RUN. • Look and listen for truck movements around you. • Walk on pedestrian –only routes where available. • 23 Near misses in two months • Avoid causing obstructions in walkways. • Cross truck routes only after checking it is safe to do so, using zebra crossings and viewing aids (e.g. mirrors) where provided. • When using shared pedestrian and truck routes give trucks a wide berth if possible
Stay Safe • Ensure that the driver is aware of your presence before approaching a truck • Report to you local manager any area where you consider there is a particular risk to pedestrians • Report any unsafe acts or near misses involving trucks (i.e. excessive speed, failure to sound horn at junctions, travelling with forks raised) • YOU MUST NOT use a mobile phone whilst walking in a truck area
Summary In order to stay safe we must ensure that we understand the hazards associated with movement of people and vehicles in the workplace. A warehouse can be a hazardous place to work but if we all follow these simple guidelines then we can avoid any accidents/injuries.
