This Guide provides information on how to manage traffic risks in the workplace, including where work is being conducted on or near a public road. It is supported by specific guidance material on traffic management for shopping centres, construction workplaces, warehouses and events, as well as an Information Sheet for small businesses and workers.

Traffic management is the planning and control of traffic from one location to another. It is the organisation, arrangement, guidance and control of both stationary and moving traffic, including pedestrians, cyclists and all types of vehicles. Traffic management focuses on creating and managing an orderly and efficient movement of persons and goods, creating a safe environment for all users.
