Describe what road safety means to your organisation?
The TMAA is committed to safety, compliance and harmonisation across Australia.
We strive for safety at sites across Australia and work with road authorities and government to mitigate risk and drive safety campaigns and safety awareness. Our key focus is driver behaviour and educating traffic controllers to assist drivers in their understanding and obligations to drive safety on roads, obey signage and speed signs and take care.
Key in this is the provision of technology products, vehicles, signage and PPE to ensure that traffic controllers are visible and so are their signs on all sites. This assists in mitigating risk to the controllers and providing clear visible information to drivers. We are working on the Australian Standards Committee and the Austroads safety at roadworks committee to further endorse risk mitigation and compliance across Australia.
Working on the frontline as first point of contact places our traffic controllers in a high risk environment each day. We urge drivers to obey signs, take care and slow down.
Why become a Program Partner?
The TMAA wishes to partner with NRSPP to continue to promote the safety at roadwork and all traffic management sites message nationally. Traffic Management. Our Job, Your Safety.
