Personnel approaching a vehicle parked in operational areas are not endangered by an unexpected vehicle movement.

Sites set minimum requirements for approaching and accessing parked mobile equipment, these consider the:

  • Possibility of a resting operator who wakes up and moves off without detecting the person accessing the parked equipment
  • The position for parking other vehicles
  • Communication with parked equipment to confirm the presence of an operator
  • Direction of travel if the parked vehicle dirves or rolls away
  • Isolation requirements on entering the footprint of the parked vehicle

Training and assessment in requirements for accessing parked vehicles.
