Assessment tasks to be completed for each worksite

For each worksite the STMS will be required to complete the following tasks:

Before leaving the yard

  • Initial check of TMP
  • Carry out vehicle checks
  • Carry out equipment check

Set up the site

  • Check the TMP suits the operation
  • Carry out TTM crew briefing
  • Direct the installation of TTM
  • Ensure equipment is used correctly
  • STMS drive through worksite inspection
  • Complete paperwork

Maintaining the site

  • Carry out visitor inductions
  • Ensure health and safety procedures are followed for safe entry to and exit from the worksite
  • Monitor traffic volumes and queues
  • Monitor pedestrian numbers and special requirements
  • Carry out site checks and self audits
  • Implement contingencies

Removal of TTM

  • Direct removal of TTM
  • Ensure equipment is stowed correctly
  • Complete paperwork.

Cat B assessment (for refresher STMS)

Because the STMS is an existing STMS, they do not need to complete verified worksites. They can proceed directly to the assessment which is observed by the assessor.

The TTM Assessor will observe a live lane worksite with alternating flow control.

We do recommend working with a TTM Mentor to go over the assessment tasks to ensure the STMS understands the requirements of each component.
