What is PAS 13?

Industrial workplace hazards are life-threatening. PAS 13 outlines best practice traffic management procedures for a workplace, providing a standard for safety guardrails and safety guardrail testing.

People are at their most vulnerable in industrial environments where vehicles and pedestrians are working in close proximity. Official industrial safety statistics from HSE record approximately 50 people are killed each year and more the 5,000 injured in accidents involving vehicles. Those injuries are frequently life-changing for the individual and can cost businesses millions.

PAS 13 provides expert guidance on how to apply safety guardrails to improve industrial safety and traffic management procedures. The Code of Practice also outlines technical requirements for safety guardrail performance and manufacture, ensuring quality control and impact resilience through standardised guardrail testing.
