workplace carpark - reversing into the space, forwards out
Sadly, I do have the stats. And I say "sadly" because my life is too short to be worrying about people "shinning" them selves on a tow bar in a car park.
The stats show just one incident - and that's the one with the bike rack on the back.
I have confidence in the stats because I encourage every incident to be reported - but that's on the basis I won't challenge an ACC claim if the incident has "gone in the book". And some of our folks would be very quick to lodge an ACC claim and take a week off work for a skinned shin.
Sadly, I also have little sympathy for people that do shin themselves. Really, at some point people need to be responsible for their own awareness and environment and think about walking around a car a bit more.
But in this "zero harm" day in age I also know I am a bit of a dinosaur, so I know I'd be expected to spend shareholder funds on putting those little wheel stop bumper things in the car park 1m out from the kerb so the reversing cars tyre would hit this and thus prevent the car from encroaching on the footpath zone. At $300 per car park I could sleep easier at night knowing some twits shin is now nicely protected.
Actually $300 wouldn't cover it. $100 for the Stop, $500 for a consultation process, $100 for the engineering reports on the drive substrate to ensure it met standards, $100 for the labour to install, $100 for fixing materials, $100 for the safety register to be updated and $100 for the subsequent audits to ensure the stop continued to meet Standard.
