Every workplace must be safe for the people and vehicles using it and traffic routes must be suitable for the people and vehicles using them.

Key messages

By law:

  • Every workplace must be safe for the people and vehicles using it.
  • Workplace traffic routes must be suitable for the people and vehicles using them.
  • Where vehicles and pedestrians share a traffic route, there must be enough separation between them.

These web pages are for workplace managers who are responsible for the safe movement of traffic and pedestrians around the workplace. You may also find them of interest if you design workplaces. There is separate guidance for drivers.
