EMESRT Design Philosophy DP- 5 Machine Operation Controls


The objective is to prevent harm, during machine operation and control, to ALARP,

including consideration in design for foreseeable human error.

General outcome:

The intended fit for purpose design outcome should:

  • eliminate the risk of collision with people, mobile and fixed equipment and other objects
  • in the vicinity of machine operation
  • prevent vehicle movement when stationary without requiring operator systems
  • activation
  • automatically prevent operation outside stability limits for speed and/or load
  • automatically prevent operation outside gravity limits for stability
  • minimise health risks for all operators, in accordance with occupational standards
  • minimise operator fatigue, including physical and mental
