How do you keep pedestrians and traffic separate on your site?
In an emergency, egress or exit pathways must be well marked out, brightly lit, unobstructed, and well maintained to allow employees and anyone on site to exit swiftly. Poor housekeeping should never result in exits being obstructed or made unsafe by vehicles, equipment, rubbish, or other objects.
To prevent risking the safety of those who work near a traffic route, pedestrians and cars, trucks, and other vehicles must be able to use it safely. Whenever possible, roadways and footpaths should be separated. People who work near roadways need to be protected. Traffic routes must also keep vehicles far enough away from pedestrian entrances or gates or from pedestrian paths that lead onto them so pedestrian safety is not endangered.
