Green light to highlight tunnel refuge points

Construction work in confined spaces, such as tunnels, poses a unique risk to those working on site. One of these risks is the danger of collision between pedestrians and plant machinery.

See the examples below for how one project addressed this:

  • The project team identified the Plant Pedestrian interface within the tunnels to be a high consequence risk.
  • Refuge bays exist in the tunnels to minimise the risk of collision and injury.
  • However, it was felt that the refuges needed to be emphasised to aid both pedestrians and plant operators.
  • Additional green fluorescent lighting was therefore introduced to draw attention to the refuge points.
