· Preplan your travel path to avoid high pedestrian traffic areas, areas that could be easily damaged by contractor traffic, and areas that the customer would prefer contractors not be seen in.
· If your travel must take you through one of these areas, preplan your travel time and prepare the path to avoid facility damage, personnel injury, and business interruption.
· Once in a pedestrian traffic area avoid stopping with carts or other objects that could present a danger to the pedestrian in the area.
· If you must stop a cart or leave another object in a pedestrian traffic area, locate it in a way that it will not place the pedestrians at risk of injury. Establish a barricade around the object if needed.
· If it is known that an area of the facility must be avoided by pedestrians, contractors, carts, etc., establish alternate traffic routes and communicate the routes to the effected people.
· If the customer requests work to be done in one of these areas it should be limited, as much as possible, to times when the customer’s employees are not using the area.
· Ensure that all contractors are familiar with the customer’s emergency reporting and response procedures for incidents they are involved in, as well as those that involve the customer’s employees.
