Required emergency checks before operation are documented and communicated in a style that is appropriate for the audience.

The training for personnel carrying out emergency checks includes vehicle specific information related to:

  • Cabin integrity
  • Cabin housekeeping (loose objects)
  • Use of seatbelts, restraints and interlocks
  • Rescue and escape devices e.g. installation of oxygen generating self-rescuers in dozers that operate on stockpiles where there is a risk of falling into a void
  • Emergency escape
  • Auto shutdown
  • Reversing alarms
  • Other relevant information about protective systems

Training and assessment of vehicle operators confirms that they understand the required emergency related prestart check requirements for the vehicle that they are operating.

Prestart inspection forms include emergency checks completed.
