Working Safely on Jersey Roads
The “Working Safely on Jersey Roads an Approved Code of Practice” is now available on the Government website: http://www.gov.je/Travel/Roads/Pages/SafetyAndTrainingStandardsForRoadWorks.aspx
This Code provides guidance on how to plan and undertake road work safely and how to ensure that your works are adequately guarded, lit and appropriately signed. It places more emphasis on the need to consider people with a disability as well as other vulnerable road users when planning and carrying out road works in Jersey.
Failure to comply with the code may be taken as evidence of failing to fulfil your legal requirements.
A site specific method statement and risk assessment prior to the works commencement is also required. If there is any doubt as to the safety of your works or compliance with the Code, you must contact the highway authority for advice or guidance.
To ensure compliance with the Code, a copy must be made available for reference at all road work sites. Hard copies will be available to purchase from the States Greffe.
A free hard copy of the Code will be made available to all those that have completed the “Road Works Safety” Training course (by postal delivery). Please contact Adrian de Gruchy (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to confirm delivery details. Anyone completing the course in the future will also receive a complementary hard copy of the Code.
