There are thousands of accidents involving traffic in the workplace on an annual basis. The main cause of injury is people being struck or crushed by heavy moving vehicles that are often used in an industrial environment. Every site is different, and is likely to present varying risks and hazards. Workplace safety can be implemented with a well designed and maintained site that features suitable segregation of vehicles from employees and vulnerable on site structures.
Your particular circumstances may make segregation challenging. Some areas of a workplace such as structural columns, pipework, cables and storage racking are always at risk from impact should a vehicle strike them. Along with people and areas, these worksite components need to be protected from errant vehicles.
The wall corners of your site are also vulnerable to damage. Any impact can result in severe damage and compromise the integrity of your structure. Corners are inherently vulnerable regardless of location, and with regard to industrial and commercial environments and the number of accidents occurring every year, it is not unreasonable to assume that they could likely suffer some kind of damage.
The form of damage naturally depends on the nature of the workplace. There are many locations such as loading bays and warehouses that have a stream of heavy vehicles moving all day long. Every employer knows the importance of protecting staff and visitors, along with protecting stock, structures and equipment. Accidents can result in severe injury, unwanted expense and irreparable damage to your professional reputation.
Even a workplace without forklift vehicles needs to sufficiently protect its internal corners.
