ROAD SAFETY AUDITS
Our road safety audits target the safety performance examination of an existing or future road / intersection / workplace roadway by using multidisciplinary approaches. It qualitatively estimates and reports on potential road safety issues and identifies opportunities for improvements in safety for all road users. Apart from motor vehicles we provide great importance to pedestrians, bicyclists and motorized two wheeler riders which are the Vulnerable Road Users.

TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT PLANS
Whether to reduce the traffic impacts during a major construction project or simply to create a safer workplace warehouse, OCCS provides traffic management plans for every size of organisation. Each year forklifts and moving vehicles cause more workplace deaths and injuries than any other equipment. Whereas improperly designed and managed construction projects or roadworks also cause a significant amount of accidents involving moving vehicles and workers. Many of these accidents could be avoided with the development of an adequate traffic management plan.
