Within workplace transport safety, there can sometimes be a crossover in terms of what is required to be carried out from a health and safety perspective. TMS are a highways-based road safety consultancy and so are able to apply our knowledge of road safety engineering, collision analysis and highway design to assess layouts within private premises.
The term ‘Workplace Transport Risk Assessment’ can often have multiple connotations. In the context of our specialism, the work we carry out at TMS is more Private Road Assessment focused.
As part of the independent assessment, we would aim to identify any conflict areas outside of buildings between manoeuvring vehicles and pedestrians. Where potential conflict points are identified, we would make proportionate recommendations to improve layouts, such as segregation between vehicles and pedestrians, delineation of walkways and improvements to crossing points.
If your organisation requires a review of more complex operational tasks within your premises, particularly with the internal aspects of the buildings (such as manual handling, vehicle detection and warning systems, pallet and fork-lift truck operations) we would advise appointing a Health and Safety Specialist recognised by the HSE.
Our involvement with Workplace Transport Safety would purely be from a highways and road safety perspective.
