Some information on this page was taken from Holcim – We Need Space to Keep You Safe.
We Need Space to Keep You Safe is a heavy vehicle and pedestrian safety campaign, developed by Holcim and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) as a result of a SafeWork NSW Enforceable Undertaking.
The safe separation of heavy vehicles and pedestrians is an ongoing challenge in many different industries, such as airports, shopping centres, industrial estates, freight transport, ports, manufacturing plants, and of course, construction, which all use heavy vehicles in the course of their operations.
Not only do heavy vehicles take longer to stop than cars, but they also have four major blind spots. If you’re walking in one of these blind spots, the driver cannot see you and may not be able to stop in time when they do.
