Vehicle/Equipment Movement Planning & Safety

Traffic Control Inside the Construction Site

The constant movement of vehicles and big equipment create serious hazards for workers on construction sites. Whether it’s a road construction site
or a large building construction site, the interaction of heavy equipment and large trucks with on-foot workers commonly creates a high fatality and
high hazard zone.

For these high risk construction zones, training is essential for all personnel. Targeted training can help increase construction employee awareness
and reduce incidents caused by heavy construction equipment including backing operations, struck-by, caught-between, and vehicle accidents.

The targeted training for supervisors and safety personnel includes learning how to develop and implement an effective internal traffic control plan
to address these hazards. An internal traffic control plan (ITCP) is a plan that is used to coordinate the flow of construction vehicles, equipment, and
workers working in close proximity within the activity area, so that the safety of the workers and operators is ensured.

Training all your workers in these basic rules will help them not only stay safe but be able to recognize an ITCP and keep it functioning smoothly.

Improve your safety inside the construction site with this essential, targeted 2-hour training class available for workers or supervisors.

Available as on-site training – your place or ours, on your schedule. To find out more about on on-sites today, Call ESC Toll Free 800.521.0778

For Supervisors

What is an ITCP? Why have an ITCP? We all know that construction zones with big equipment are high
risk areas for on-the-job worker injuries. Participants will learn methods to improve work zone employee safety and why having an Internal Traffic Control
Plans (ITCP) is crucial. In this class supervisors will learn:

  • The responsibilities and roles in the ITCP.
  • Steps in developing an ITCP and the critical elements the ITCP should cover including:
    • ITCP diagrams,
    • Essential training, and
    • Effectiveness evaluations.
  • The conflicting movements of trucks, equipment, and workers.
  • Blind spots awareness and specific equipment diagrams.
  • Incorporating situational awareness into Incident Prevention.
  • Conducting a trial run for an ITCP, and
  • How training your workers in these basic rules will help them not only stay safe but be able to recognize when an ITCP may not be
    functioning properly.

For Employees

Most employees know that construction zones with big equipment are high risk areas for on-the-job worker
injuries. Participants will learn how to greatly reduce their exposure in the work zone and why a better understanding of the Internal Traffic Control Plan
(ITCP) is key. In this class employees will learn:

  • The importance of Situational Awareness and
    • Incorporating situational awareness into incident prevention.
    • The conflicting movements of trucks, equipment, and workers.
    • Blind spots awareness and specific equipment diagrams.
  • The responsibilities and roles in the ITCP.
  • Essential elements in the ITCP including:
    • ITCP diagrams, and
    • Essential training.
  • How knowing the basic rules will help you not only stay safe, but be able to recognize when an ITCP may not be properly.
