Operators unaware of give way requirements for light vehicles, caused by:

  • Vehicle operators not trained or assessed in site requirements
  • Right of way rules not being understood
  • Contractors travelling (working) on multiple sites conforming to different rules
  • LV believe they have right of way and proceeds through the intersection and a HV turns across the path of a LV
  • LV cannot stop in time

 This Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • BI-01D.01 Trained personnel who are supported by an appropriate and up-to-date training management system
  • BI-01P.01 Trained, Competent and Authorised Mobile Equipment Operators
  • BI-01P.06 Give way requirements information prepared for mobile equipment operators and pedestrians
  • BI-05D.03 Effective contractor management processes
  • NRS BI-01.33 Give way requirements for light vehicles – information prepared for operators
