- exclusion zones – separating people and plant
- couple and uncouple trailers
- safe zones for drivers and safe parking areas
- roadside safety.
The workshop will also provide a summary of injury trends and factors in transport and a status update on what’s happening in the Transport WHS Sector Plan.
