EMESRT first turned its attention to mobile equipment fires in 2007, when it published an initial Design Philosophy (DP-4) focussing on fire. DP-4 is a high-level overview of problems that can lead to adverse consequences from mobile equipment fire events. Its purpose is to provide an understanding of the problems through succinct written examples with visual scenario information to assist Original Equipment Manufacturers in designing equipment to reduce the risks of potential unwanted equipment fire events. This project is an extension of the original work carried out in developing DP-4.
The content of this report has been collated from the project journey. It summarises how the industry can come together to tackle difficult industry issues.
