Pedestrian and vehicle conflicts

With the huge amount of collisions that occur on UK roads every year, accidents within the workplace, involving cars and delivery vehicles, are often overlooked as a hazard, until an accident occurs. 

The interaction of vehicle activities and people moving around the workplace can be very dangerous and should be properly managed by employers and included in the workplace risk assessment.

The traffic management arrangements for vehicles entering, operating on the premises or even using the car park should be assessed to determine if they are suitable to minimise the risk to all staff and visitors.
