Workplace Transport Risk Assessment

National Fast Fit Centre

TMS were commissioned by a national fast fit and automotive parts replacement specialist to review their risk assessments associated with transport issues at four of their sites in Liverpool, and to produce revised Workplace Transport Risk Assessment for each site.

The assessments were carried out in accordance with the HSE publication: Workplace Transport Safety: an employers' guide, HSG136.

During the site visit, some of the conflict issues highlighted by the assessors were: 

  • Poor condition of car park surface presenting a trip hazard for customers
  • Delivery vehicle blocking footway whilst unloading, requiring the general public to walk into the road
  • Unclear signage for reception area encouraging customers to walk through the workshop area

TMS will continue to assist the company by training their Centre Staff in how to carryout and review the risk assessments for the future.
