Mobile plant and road resurfacing activities require constant interaction between plant in operation and workers on foot. Plant operating zones around powered mobile plant in operation presents blind spots and vision shadows.
When mobile equipment in operation is placed together with workers on foot there is a need for adequate and safe separation to ensure that a worker does not come into contact with mobile plant in operation.
Plant to plant exclusion zones, visibility and communication are presented in this example of a compact and busy road resurfacing work environment. Control measures are reinforced around managing fitness for work and fatigue to ensure that workers understand expectations and their responsibilities.
