Very easy to follow guidelines generally work best as rules for staff to follow as an example making areas of the workplace sectioned off for pedestrians away from where the machinery is operating is a very easy rule not only to follow but to police. Any machinery which could potentially cause harm to an unwary bystander should always be sectioned off where possible and where this is not possible warning signs prior to entry to this area should be prominently displayed. Employees should always be warned prior if there is an increased likelihood of an accident occurring before they enter any such area.
