Vehicle(s) do not comply with site and corporate standards for lighting, signage and markings, caused by:

  • Inadequate vehicle identification number design i.e. size and location of numbers
  • Uncontrolled introduction of mobile equipment to site e.g. through contractors
  • Inadequate pre-operation inspections and/or maintenance
  • Sight lines from operator position impeded (dirty windscreens, poorly sited materials/components, etc.)
  • Missing/worn reflective markings and strobe lights.

This Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • BI-00D.01 There is a documented site Traffic Management Plan
  • BI-00S.01 Senior management review, update, and confirm the Traffic Management Plan as being fit-for-purpose by senior management:
  • BI-01P.11 Vehicle lights and markings requirements – information prepared for operators
  • BI-01P.20 Skilled and experienced personnel are accountable for maintaining mobile equipment
  • BI-02P.01 All safety and operational systems on mobile equipment are maintained
  • BI-05D.03 Effective contractor management processes
  • BI-05P.04 Skilled and experienced personnel are accountable for specifying and selecting mobile equipment and mobile equipment components
  • BI-05P.05 Skilled and experienced personnel are accountable for determining the operating parameters for mobile equipment use
  • BI-05S.05 Appropriate system for scheduled inspections include structured checklists and defect reporting
