Objectives:

To promote a safe system of work for traffic management operations.

Methodology:

This document was put together following extensive consultation with Highways Authorities, Contractors, maintenance agents, police, health and safety practitioners and highway research specialists.

Key Findings:

The document makes many practical recommendations for designing, implementing and managing road works, based on a simple framework of risk principles.

Themes:

Risk, safety, management

Comments:

The approach to risk and principles are potentially valuable. However, the industry has developed in the time since this was published and the two revisions to TSM Chapter 8 are likely to supersede much of the technical content in this document.
