Powered Industrial Trucks/Signs Signals & Barricades: CAZ - A Controlled Access Zone is an area that is inaccessible by workers, unless a worker makes a deliberate action to enter the area, they are permitted to enter the area by their fall protection plan (which is developed by a Qualified Person), and a safety monitor is present to supervise work being done in that area.
Above, a clearly defined CAZ was established prior to lifting functions by the operator. Warning lines were placed on either side of lifting area warning other employees from breaching the area. Best practice recommendation is to place “Danger” tape up in these areas as well in order to communicate high-hazard work is being conducted during lifting and off-loading tasks.
