Commercial vehicle movements in the workplace require careful management to control and reduce the likelihood of accidents. An employer has a legal duty to make sure that people are safe in the workplace they control, even where they are employed by others or are members of the public.
Every workplace should be organised so that pedestrians and vehicles can circulate safely. Workplace traffic routes should be suitable for the people and vehicles using them. Where vehicles and pedestrians use the same traffic route, ideally there should be adequate separation between them.
