Risk Assessment Overview Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (AGTTM) Part 10 identifies that “the application of risk management for TTM at road works is appropriate at all levels of planning and operation, from the minor and routine schemes through to large scale and complex road work sites”. The appropriate completion of a robust risk assessment and management process is also a key part of the Work Health and Safety (or equivalent) obligations for all organisations involved in temporary traffic management.
A key risk in the conduct of TTM is that the risk management process itself can frequently be perceived as onerous paperwork that interrupts completion of the works task. It is critical that employers in TTM ensure that risk management is more than simple application of generic checklists which can typically be simply ticked off.
This series of introductory webinars on risk management for TTM has been developed to assist practitioners and organisations in TTM understand the practical application of the guidance in AGTTM and AS/ISO 31000. Steps and examples of industry best practice in risk management are stepped through in each of the three major steps of a TTM project.
Webinar 1 – Risk Management in Traffic Management Planning Summary:
The traffic management planning (TMP) task and process is outlined in AGTTM Part 2. It is critical that for every TTM task that a level of planning be undertaken. Even for repetitive maintenance tasks, an overarching TMP should be prepared defining the basic rules and concepts to be complied with when implementing generic or organisational specific TGS. For major works, a complex TMP may well involve multiple stages and consideration of complex interaction of issues.
Risk management in the TMP concentrates on the initial identification of all foreseeable risks at a worksite. The risk management will then include a list of the typical risks to be considered at all projects but should also clearly identify the risks specific to the particular task being undertaken. The outcome of the risk management at this stage is an assessment of those risks that can be addressed in planning the works, and the identification / assessment of those relevant risks which should be considered in the next phase of the works – the development of the TGS(s).
