2003 Traffic Safety Facts Traffic safety facts: 4,749 pedestrians killed in traffic crashes 70,000 injured 86% of all non-occupational roadway fatalities 2/3 of the fatalities were male Aged 70+
2003 Work Zone Safety Facts Federal Highway Administration: 1,028 were killed 40,000 injured yearly 85% of fatalities are drivers or occupants 15% of fatalities are non-motorists
Pedestrians in the Workplace Pedestrians in the workplace: Issue not confined to public roads Moving vehicles and pedestrians creates potential for accidents OSHA reported 336 fatalities in 2003
Control Measures Engineering controls: Physical separation of pedestrians and vehicles Improving facility design Use of safer mobile equipment Administrative controls: Worker training Restricting access Establishing traffic flow patterns
Physical Separations of Pedestrians and Vehicles Preference is for segregation: Pedestrian walkways Pedestrian barriers Designated traffic routes: Wide as possible, and marked Separate access to building Crossings: Markings and signs Visibility and lighting
Pedestrian Barriers Pedestrian barriers: Longitudinal obstructions that separate and protect OSHA recommends barriers of sufficient strength and low deflection characteristics Short, non-continuous segments should be avoided Vertical curbs
Traffic Routes Workplace traffic routes: Safe for all Wide enough for largest vehicle One-way Free from excessive gradients Well maintained Free from damage
Parking Areas Onsite parking: Separate work and private vehicle spaces Clear, well lit walkways Employees and customers with private vehicles: Specified safe routes Clear signage Clear posted speed limits
Illumination All routes: Adequately lit Avoid extreme light variation Provide sun glare protection
Operational Safety of Vehicles and Equipment Contributors to pedestrian safety: Horns, lights, reflectors, reverse lights, and back-up alarms Good visibility Clean windshields Preventive maintenance
Speed Control Workplace speed limits: Based on hazards Prominently posted Enforcement
Clothing and Personal Protective Equipment Effective strategies: High visibility apparel Fluorescent colored high-visibility apparel at dawn or dusk Yellow-green colors for good contrast to equipment
