Traffic Management Leading Practice (TMLP)

At a MOSH Transport and Machinery planning workshop held in October 2014, the need for effective Traffic Management for Open Pit/Cast mines was identified by industry representatives as a Leading Practice for achieving significant progress towards the occupational safety and health targets.

The events addressed by the Traffic Management Leading Practice include:

  • injury to persons through collision of mobile equipment in Open Pit/Cast Operations,
  • injury to persons on foot (pedestrians) by mobile machines(working) , in Open Pit/Cast Operations
  • injury to persons entering hazardous areas,
