  • No detector or alarm
  • Detector not adequate – cannot detect excessive heat situation

  • BI-01.43 Required system health checks before mobile equipment operation – information for operator by vehicle type specifying: access and escape, alarms, fire suppression, auto shutdowns and other relevant protective systems
  • BI-02.09 Regular checking and maintenance of alarms and monitors
  • BI-02.31 Operator prestart checks include brakes, steering, tyres and running gear
  • BI-02A.80 System that monitors thermal digital fingerprint
  • BI-05.06 Regular monitoring of equipment status that predicts fires, alarms on equipment, and notifies
