Equipment selected for site use is fit for purpose and delivers safe and productive outcomes.

Sites have an equipment selection process that uses asset specifications when:

  • Purchasing new or used equipment
  • Transferring equipment to site
  • Hiring equipment
  • Assessing contractor equipment

Equipment specifications ensure that mobile equipment assets meet site production and operating environment demands. This includes the use of ancillary equipment such as forklifts, scissor lifts, elevating work platforms etc. and considers suitability for the operating environment (stability, use of quick detact systems etc.)

Information on equipment use limitations should be provided to the operator.

Senior managers including representative of operations and maintenance approve equipment selection recommendations.

A rigorous introduction to site process checks that received mobile equipment meets site requirements before it is permitted to operate. This includes ensuring that site requirements are met for:

  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Running gear e.g. tyres
  • Head lights
  • Running lights
  • Indicators
  • Vehicle identification numbers that are clear and visible
