All personnel operating vehicles remain alert and situationally aware when working in congested areas.

Communications requirements detail vehicle entry requirements to congested work areas e.g. loading

At a minimum these requirements cover:

  • Work area delineation (where to stop and queue etc.)
  • Radio (or other communications) call up protocols
  • Following signs
  • Confirming that communication has been received

Training and Assessment in requirements for Positive Communications for Entering a Work Area requirements included in generally delivered modules (e.g. Induction) and reinforced in Vehicle Operation modules. Start of shift or similar briefings should identify intended active haul circuits / work areas and include guidance information on the area owners and required communication to occur prior to entry into these areas.

Permanent or mobile signs for call up requirements.
