- Pedestrian walkways should be protected by screens where they pass close to vehicle routes to protect people from anything that might fall from a vehicle.
- Road quality should be suitable for vehicles intending to use them; they should be firm, even, properly drained and steep slopes should be avoided.
Suggestions for making sites safer will prove ultimately ineffective if rules are not enforced and adhered to by those on site. A ‘no blame/no fault’ culture should be encouraged whereby everyone on site feels able to contribute good ideas on how to improve safety – rather than hush up minor accidents or ‘near misses’. ‘Tool box’ meetings with operators and tradesmen on ways to improve site safety invariably produce good ideas.
