After a comprehensive analysis of Sims traffic-related incidents, and review of our traffic management practices, a global self-assessment to drive improvement considerations was generated and assigned for completion across our sites.
The assessment was developed through the recommendations from a third-party traffic specialist who uses GPS technology to track on-site traffic patterns. The analysis focused on potential vehicle-to-pedestrian contact, traffic site entry, on-site traffic flow and vehicle conflicts.
The traffic management self-assessment has been completed in over 80 sites globally so far, and has generated more than 300 improvement actions to reduce traffic related critical risks. These improvements include speed reduction controls, pedestrian segregation, site entry modifications, locally consistent wayfinding signage, inspector protection and traffic flow management using automatic gates and light systems.
