Keep your people safe in Loading/Unloading Exclusion Zones (LUEZ)

Thursday, 9 Nov 2017 ( #846 )

Despite the many measures taken, loading and unloading procedures are still incorrectly followed. Heavy machinery falls from loading areas and people are still being hit by moving vehicles, causing terrible, life-altering injuries. In worst-case scenarios, these accidents end in fatalities.

These recurring onsite personnel safety issues are commonly referred to as Loading, Unloading Exclusion Zone incidents or LUEZ for short. According to WorkCover Queensland, there are more than 200 serious LUEZ incidents annually in the construction industry alone. This frequency of injury or death due to Loading, Unloading Exclusion Zone incidents is far too high.
