Post workers were at risk due to traffic management arrangements at Australia Post Business Hub said Comcare.
An Improvement Notice issued by Comcare required Post to implement traffic management arrangements to ensure that the layout of the workplace and systems of work allow for PDO motorcycle traffic and forklift vehicles to operate at the workplace without the risks of forklifts and motorcycles colliding. Really!
Post has since installed a locked gate across the area which had allowed for PDOs to enter the forklift area.
Unfortunately this is not the only workplace where forklifts interact with traffic, usually pedestrian traffic. If risks from dangerous traffic management arrangements afflict your workplace contact your HSR and/or CWU Representative or CWU Branch.
