MELBOURNE TRAFFIC CONTROL EQUIPMENT HIRE
Managing a construction site is an important task. You need to keep your workers and the public safe, while still allowing them access to specific project areas.
It can be hard to manage all of these different tasks at once, especially if you don’t have the required equipment or supplies on hand. This can lead to accidents that could have been avoided with additional safety measures in place.
Our products help keep everyone safe as they pass through your construction site. We have everything from cones to ramps and bollards, so that no one gets overlooked while working near roads or sidewalks.
All of our products are constructed with high visibility materials. Even when people aren’t paying attention, they’ll still see these clearly and know where not to walk or drive around the boundaries of your project.
Traffic control equipment for projects of all sizes
Traffic management is a serious issue for any construction or road work. Without the proper equipment, pedestrians and vehicles can be put at risk by the works on site.
The safety measures are proportionate to the risk, and our products help ensure safety on any construction site, whether it’s a small residential project or a major highway expansion.
Some works may be low risk and have minimal impact on vehicles and pedestrians. For example, washing a shop window or painting a shopfront where the footpath can be kept open by being narrowed slightly don’t cause too much drama.
What credentials do I need to run this myself?
For smaller construction projects and events, many clients opt to manage their traffic control themselves to reduce costs.
For example, when works are occurring on a footpath of a local council road and the level of risk is low, there is less need for active traffic control. For this reason, we offer the equipment hire service so that those clients can set up the worksite themselves.
Before you hire equipment and start closing parts of roads and footpaths yourself, you need to complete two courses to be qualified. These include:
- RIIWHS205E: A course that will give you the skills and knowledge to control vehicles and pedestrians with a stop-slow bat
- RIIWHS302E: So you have the skills and ability to read, interpret and implement traffic management plans
This does not apply to any jobsite or signs required on freeways and arterial roads, where the authority is VicRoads. If you’re unclear on what kind of road you are working on, they’re identified on the Melway, available online or in physical book form.
Anytime you’re placing signs on a VicRoads asset (including advanced warning signage), you’re required to have approval. In addition, traffic management implementation can only be done by companies that hold VicRoads pre-qualification for Traffic Guidance Scheme (TGS) implementation.
