This Guide is supported by specific traffic management guides for:

  • Shopping centres
  • Construction workplaces
  • Warehouses, and
  • Events.

The four specific guides were previously published in July 2013. The guides have been updated. An amendments table advising the changes that were made along with the previous document versions is available here. A Traffic Hazards Checklist and Traffic Control Measures Checklist are also provided to assist duty holders manage traffic risks.

The Information Sheet: Workplace traffic management provides advice for small businesses and workers on managing traffic risks in the workplace.

The word ‘should’ is used in these documents to indicate a recommended course of action, while ‘may’ is used to indicate an optional course of action.

The words ‘must’, ‘requires’ or ‘mandatory’ indicate that a legal requirement exists in the Work Health and Safety laws and must be complied with.

(These documents were published without all accessibility requirements for electronic documents met. Accessible word and PDF versions that meet all accessibility requirements are now available. These versions replace the previous ‘inaccessible’ versions.)
