Applying the guide – the TTM library

Additional information has been developed by Waka Kotahi and the TTM industry as a starting point to help put the guide into practice.

Guidance notes, supporting information and resources

Example forms

Some example forms have been included in the example forms guidance note, however they are not mandatory. A PCBU is encouraged to consider their needs and whether their own form is required.

About the TTM library

There are a range of audiences that will find resources in the TTM library to help with risk and risk review processes, engineering, operations, and other functions.

The TTM library includes: 

Guidance notes

Description: following the TTM principles introduced in the guide, these notes outline how these principles can be applied in practice. The notes will also include guidance on how to manage unusual circumstances using the principles of the guide.

Examples: risk management practice, geometric design information, extreme weather event, for example cyclone Gabrielle.

Lead: Waka Kotahi, TTM industry steering group, transport authority organisations.

Operational practice notes

Description: risks and considerations of control measures that the contracting PCBU would determine are appropriate for regularly repeated specific activities. Operational practice notes are foundational to TMP’s for site specific and preapproved reusable schemes.

Examples: a framework for operational practice will be developed by the TTM Industry Steering Group, however it is expected to cover situations such as mobile operations, static sites, events.

Lead: Contractor PCBU/TTM Industry Steering Group.

Administrative notes

Description: various administrative and process requirements to bring life to the TTM system principles including:

  • forms and documentation that are relevant while preparing or implementing a TMP
  • audit forms
  • on site record forms.

Examples: access permit red alert, a RCA’s Christmas holidays, forms and processes for planning, quality assurance and control, operational practice.

Lead: Transport authority organisations.

We’ll continue to work with the TTM sector to support the development of the TTM library which will act as a central hub for guidance notes, supporting information and resources. Everyone across the TTM sector can create resources and contribute to the library.
