Safety Guidelines

The issue of truck driver and other personnel safety around mobile plant equipment during loading and unloading operations – referred to as ‘loading, unloading exclusion zones’ (LUEZ) is one of the significant safety issues confronting all levels of Industries within the supply chain.

This guidance material has been developed by the Industry LUEZ Committee to assist employers, drivers, forklift/materials handling operators, supervisors, managers, health and safety representatives, and others to implement effective controls to prevent drivers and other people being injured during the loading and unloading of vehicles across a range of circumstances. It reflects the outcomes of engagement within workplaces across the supply chain in identifying the ‘do’s’ and ‘do not’s’ of effective separation of people and equipment in respect to loading/unloading activities.
