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 2 – Risk Management in designing the Traffic Guidance Scheme:
The traffic guidance scheme (TGS) design task and process is outlined in AGTTM Parts 3, 4 and 5. It is critical that for every TTM task that an appropriate TGS be prepared. For repetitive maintenance tasks, generic TGSs may be selected through an appropriate process while for other works, site specific TGS will be required to address the multiple stages and issues at a site.
In developing the traffic guidance scheme(s) (TGS), the designer will undertake a detailed consideration of all risks identified in the planning (TMP) stage of the works and all new risks identified in developing the TGS. The designer should also consider all risks arising from the implementation of the design in the field. At this stage, the identification of risks that cannot be sufficiently addressed may require a reconsideration of the planning for the works.
The outcome of the risk management task with the TGS design is the documentation of the management of those risks that can be addressed in designing the TGS, and the identification / assessment of those risks relevant to the works which should be considered in the next phase of the works – the implementation of the TGS(s) in the field.
