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.
