Abstract This paper details a previous termforklift safetynext term demonstration project undertaken at two manufacturing sites in Victoria, Australia. The purpose of the work was both to help improve previous termsafetynext term at the two sites, and, more broadly, to develop, help implement and evaluate a series of human-centred design interventions involving vehicles and pedestrian workers. The ‘before’ and ‘after’ case study presented here summarises the background to the research and introduces the test sites. Thereafter, it describes the overall nature of the previous termsafetynext term interventions proposed and introduces the methods developed to assess previous term For the previous termtraffic engineeringnext term interventions, positive previous termsafetynext term results were found in terms of reductions in the number of potentially hazardous interactions involving previous term Similarly, for the vehicle interventions, the research found that previous termforkliftnext term drivers and managers considered the newly developed and installed Intelligent Transport Systems to be broadly acceptable in operational conditions, and the systems’ intended previous termsafetynext term benefits were well understood. The results are discussed and conclusions are drawn regarding human factors aspects of previous termforklift term
