Abstract
The safety of pedestrian workers and construction vehicle operators can be enhanced by a carefully prepared internal traffic control plan (ITCP) administered by a competent person. Time and effort spent in preparing and using an ITCP should lower the rate of occupational injuries and fatalities experienced by construction personnel. This paper describes the purpose and components of ITCPs and presents details of a number of highway worker accidents and discusses how an ITCP prepared by a competent person on the project could have prevented or lessened the severity of the accident. Results of observation of paving at four sites in Arizona and recommendations for preparation and use of ITCPs are also discussed. Accident details are taken from several investigations and from Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluations funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. During the study of four paving sites, a guide for preparing and administering ITCP was prepared.
