Working with off-the-road tyres for earth-moving machinery is potentially dangerous because of their large size and mass, magnitude of air or gas pressures, and presence of combustible materials. The uncontrolled release of stored energy can have serious, even fatal, consequences.

This guideline describes the common hazards when working with tyres, rims, wheels and assemblies on mining equipment.

It provides guidance on safe systems of work in a mining environment, while allowing for flexibility in both process and documentation.
