Traffic Management Audits

Traffic Management Audits

Temporary Safety Measures Inspection (TSMI) is an inspection of road works sites on the national road network. The purpose of TSMI is to ensure that temporary safety measures standards are being correctly implemented at road work sites and to record possible impacts of road works on the safety of traffic flow.
Scannell Safety Services offer a professional Temporary Safety Measures Inspection (TSMI) Service to ensure temporary traffic measures (TTM) operations are being managed safely and correctly. Auditing will ensure compliance with organisational policies and procedures, but also ensure operations are being completed in accordance with traffic management plans.
This practice will in turn help to standardise good practice and improve efficiency within your workforce.
