 Safe Operating Procedure Controlled Document

WSHMS-02A-SOP-008-02


PURPOSE

 

To establish divisional expectations and standards regarding a traffic control program at River East Transcona School Division (RETSD) that meets or exceeds all municipal, federal and provincial legislated workplace safety and health program requirements.

 

A  traffic control program must be defined and documented for compliance as part of Element 2, identify and control hazards and emergencies, for the effective development and implementation of a workplace safety and health program under Manitoba legislation.

 

SCOPE

 

This safe operating procedure and associated documents establish a procedure for a traffic control program for all workers at RETSD.

 

The best practices apply to all RETSD worksites where there is a need to protect pedestrians and vehicular traffic on the worksite. This would include buss loops, designated student pick up and drop off areas, parking lots, service vehicles on worksite property, other.

 

 

RESPONSIBILITY

 

 

All stakeholders and workers are responsible for complying with traffic control safety provisions as set by local supervision.

 

TRAFFIC CONTROL PROGRAM GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

 

All facilities should evaluate vehicular and pedestrian traffic volumes, organization and flow to ensure that here are minimal opportunities for collisions of any kind between vehicles, pedestrians or both.

 

All directional, traffic flow and speed restriction indicators posted on RESTD sites shall be adhered to by all people entering RETSD property.

 

COMMUNICATION

 

A combination of hard-copy postings, distributions and electronic posting will be used to communicate safety and health program information within RETSD.

 

TRAINING

 

All stakeholders shall be trained to their required level of involvement in the WSHMS to become familiar with its structure, organization, and how to look up and access information both electronically and in hard copy form through:

 

  • New employee orientation, employee manuals or employment information packages

 

  • Return to work or remedial programs, as required on an individual basis

 

  • Planned ongoing training through team meetings, individual coaching or other methods as developed or adopted

 

ENFORCEMENT

 

Ultimately, the superintendent shall be responsible for the sustainability of the WSHMS, and shall enforce compliance to standards at a divisional level.

 

Workplace safety and health management system compliance shall be managed through the application of performance management and progressive discipline policies and procedures.

 

Worker failure to comply with provisions of the RETSD safety program may lead to discipline, up to and including discharge from employment and / or other remedies available at law.
