Operator fails to manage heavy vehicle blind spots, caused by:

  • Light vehicles or Co-workers on the ground
  • Operators (LV, HV or other) not understanding HV limitations (sight lines, stopping, etc)
  • Tradesman working on broken down equipment in an operational area
  • Pedestrian assumes that operator knows their position

 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.12 Sight lines and blind spots by vehicle type – information prepared for vehicle operators
  • BI-01P.13 Sight lines and blind spots from outside – information prepared for people who work around vehicles
  • BI-04D.03 Road design guidelines specify walkway designs considering vehicle sight lines
  • BI-04P.05 Demarcation when changed road conditions arise including commissioning or live testing is being undertaken
  • BI-04P.06 Protocols for approaching and accessing mobile equipment underground
  • BI-04P.11 Protocols for working on equipment in production areas
