Fire suppression systems are compromised during maintenance:

  • Suppression system remains isolated on return to service
  • Re positioning of pyro-tubes or suppression nozzles
  • Lack of preventative maintenance on suppression systems
  • Lack of suppression system not detected on introduction to site

 Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • BI-01.13 Clear maintainer performance management expectations supported by an active and consistent performance management process
  • BI-01.51 Skilled and experienced personnel are accountable for maintaining mobile equipment
  • BI-02.02 Maintenance requirements cover all safety and operational systems on mobile plant
  • BI-02.08 Fire suppression system is integrated into machine operation
  • BI-02.50 Plant Safety Files – requirement to register and track plant components and certificates
  • BI-02.51 Agreed review hold points during OEM equipment builds and refurbishment
  • BI-02A.30 OEM Designs provide for installation of fire detection and suppression systems
  • BI-02A.46 Fire suppression specification for mobile equipment
  • BI-02A.60 Specification for an OEM Fire protection evaluation for mobile equipment
