The traffic guidance scheme (TGS) implementation task and process are outlined in AGTTM 6. Even for repetitive maintenance tasks applying generic TGSs selected through an appropriate process a risk management must be completed. For more complex works this will require the consideration of a detailed risk register which applies to each TGS to be implemented on site.
In implementing the traffic guidance scheme(s) (TGS), the implementer must undertake a complete consideration of all foreseeable risks at the worksite. This will include the consideration of all risks identified in the planning (TMP) and design (TGS) stages of the works and the documentation and assessment of any additional risks relevant to the works identified in site. It is at this stage that the risk management for a particular worksite is completed which should result in a documented approach to minimise all foreseeable risks to the highest practical level. If at this stage, risks are identified that cannot be sufficiently addressed there may need to be a reconsideration of the planning or design for the works.
The outcome of this task is the management of all remaining residual risks identified in the development of the TMP, designing the TGS, and on site. The implementer must undertake an evaluation of all remaining risks to establish if they can be addressed through on site practices, minor adjustments to the TGS, or whether additional design input is required.
