It can be applied to all heavy & light vehicles road journeys in the conduct road journeys undertaken in any transport operations on public roads in high-risk geographies. Areas identified as high-must be managed to ensure that action is taken to mitigate the risks.
||Local hazards and risks must be identified and risk reduction measures must be taken to minimize exposure. All known hazards like steep gradients, narrow bridges, poor road surfaces, dangerous intersections etc. are listed and mapped as per low, medium, and High risk category and a mitigation plan is suggested, this could also include emergency help line services, such as police, ambulance and crane services.

Temporary route hazards (e.g. diversions, road works, flooded areas etc.) must be notified and communicated to the driver before commencing journey. The route hazard maps could be supplied to each driver for every route.
This Risk list is subject to regular review and update as the risk profile changes.
