Caused by poor quality control: inadequate inspection before returning equipment to service – with inspections not covering:

  • Service and maintenance work to standard and recorded
  • Hoses and fluid lines leaks absence confirmed
  • Deflectors and hot surface insulation are in place
  • Fire detection, alarm and suppression systems are operative

 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-02.21 Design of components means they cannot be fitted wrongly e.g. turbo chargers on backwards
  • BI-04.02 Appropriate system for scheduled inspections including structured checklists and defect reporting
