What to look for...

Selecting a Traffic Management Company

When selecting a traffic management company, there are a range of essential components to consider. Amongst other qualities, we know you ultimately strive to work collaboratively with a company that offers honesty, integrity, superior service and excellence.

If this is what you are looking for, then the following criteria should be essential in your selection for the right traffic management company to minimize your risk.

Are they fully insured?

A comprehensive range of business insurance is required. A minimum £10m Public Liability, Comprehensive Vehicle Insurance and Employers Liability gives you peace of mind should an accident occur. Reputable traffic management companies are happy to provide Certificates.

Are Method Statements completed on every site?

Legislation requires that a Method Statement must be completed on every traffic management site. Ask for a copy to satisfy that it meets legislation and your requirements.

Are job safety audits completed?

Audits are the best way to confirm that the worksite meets the required standards. Ask for a copy of the audits and how often they are completed.

Are their Staff qualified? If so, how many hold current qualifications?

All personnel managing traffic must have a ticket. Ask for a copy or provide visual evidence of their Sector Scheme Qualifications in Traffic Management will vary. Itís YOUR right to be informed who is on your site at any given moment when controlling traffic.

What vehicles do they run? How old are they and are they maintained?

Businesses that run vehicles older than 4 years are likely to experience mechanical issues. These issues can affect the efficiency of YOUR operation costing you time and money.

Do they use sub-contractors?

If so, how will this affect you? Ensure that the company you retain is the company actually doing the work. Subcontracting benefits the suppliers but exposes YOU. If a traffic incident occurs where your supplier subcontracted work, there are significant liability issues associated with insurance responsibilities.
