STA’s Fleet and Workforce Management Systems

Tier one Traffic Management businesses are relied upon to be flexible and on short notice, increase staff availability to meet the varying demands of our client’s for a diversity of applications from Freeway closures to major civil works, festivals, public events, project occupations to emergency situations, where specialised Traffic Controllers are required after hours and at short notice.

Increasingly, when planning all types of Traffic Management projects, detailed site inductions and relevant certifications is essential. Traffic Controllers holding White cards, Police Checks, Working with Children cards, Rail Cards and First Aid Certificates now form part of the basic entry requirements for Traffic Controllers to operate, Notwithstanding the importance of specific site inductions. When considering safety our Traffic Controllers must have the right experience and expertise to ensure our clients have peace of mind and ensure the safety of their staff and the general public, makes the selection and allocation of suitable traffic controllers an important part of the job allocation process.

Combining this with accurate Traffic Management Plans, supporting safety documentation (SWMS and JSA’s) matched to the right equipment, like Attenuators, Arrow boards, bollards and Variable Message Signs, makes the allocation and matching of Traffic Controllers, their experience, accurate documentation and equipment to each job an exacting science.
