The Guidelines for Establishing a Safe Work Zone on a Roadside is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps for the management of traffic around a roadside work area.

The purpose of this guideline is to provide the PCBU (person conducting business or undertaking) with information to assist in the identification of effective Traffic Management Risk Controls with the view of ensuring that all reasonably practicable steps have been taken to prevent the likelihood of any traffic related incidents.

Reference must be made to relevant State Legislation – OH&S / Road Traffic Authority and Council. Further, this guideline will assist PCBUs in establishing the content of the Traffic Management Plan (TMP) for the roadside activity.

Work on or near a road is defined as “High Risk Construction Work" by Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011.


Remember: The content of the SWMS should be refined over time and include consultation with workers and other persons conducting a business or undertaking. Prior to each new activity, the SWMS must be reviewed and revised to ensure it applies to the high risk construction work and the actual site you are working at.
