Vehicles are operated outside specified tyre/tire conditions for pressure, temperature, speed or load limits, caused by:

  • Unaware or does not understand the requirement for operating LV/HV Vehicles on site (travel routes, vehicle capabilities, critical systems)
  • Incorrect tyre pressure
  • Personnel choosing to speed
  • Degraded tyre/tire conditions (tread, side-wall integrity, etc.) not identified or reacted to

 This Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • BI-01S.01 Clear operator performance management expectations supported by an active and consistent performance management process
  • BI-02P.06 Operator pre-start checks include communication system, safety devices, brakes, steering, tyres and running gear
  • BI-02P.08 Regular checking and maintenance of brakes, steering and tyres
  • BI-02P.20 Tyre hazard awareness for equipment operators
  • BI-02S.05 Protocols for the calibration of key measuring equipment
  • BI-05D.04 Position descriptions that specify expected supervisor performance
