TTM responsibilities for Road Managers and Contractors.
Level of difficulty: Intermediate
When it comes to managing risk, we can outsource the execution of tasks, but we can never outsource the responsibility. Under WHS laws, we have duty to keep people in the workplace safe. To achieve this, we need the knowledge and skills to ensure work operations remain compliant.
Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) is critical in ensuring the safety of road users, workers, and pedestrians when there are temporary changes to the normal flow of traffic. Its purpose is to provide a safe environment for both the public and those working on or near the road. The person in control of the worksite has a responsibility to ensure that TTM activities meet regulatory and project requirements.
Benefits of the course
Participants in this program will gain an understanding of the practical and regulatory requirements for TTM and obtain an insight into the opportunities for significant cost savings by implementing fit-for-purpose solutions for low impact and short-term activities without a reduction in safety.
This one-day workshop will provide a summary of the new standards, an overview of the key elements of TTM practice, and the essential aspects related to the role that Road Managers, Project Managers and Contractors must apply to achieve a safe and compliant worksite.
Who should do this course?
Project Managers, Engineers, Planners, Supervisors, Inspectors, WHS Officers, and any staff involved in the planning, management, and operations of construction and maintenance activities requiring TTM.
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
- identify the key reference documentation and main changes in TTM practice
- describe the key functional TTM roles and obligations for a project
- identify procurement risks and potential problems common to the implementation of TTM
- identify requirements for TMP’s, TGS’s and training requirements
- implement robust processes for surveillance and inspection of worksite TTM.
