Blind spots on Heavy Vehicles are not considered when deciding on workplace layout (during mine or shift planning), caused by:

  • Location of walkways without adequate sight lines
  • Failure to establish or improve intersection demarcation and/or lighting

 This Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • 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-05D.01 Clear accountabilities for managers, superintendents and supervisors are included in comprehensive, site relevant road design guidelines and traffic management plans
  • BI-05S.05 Appropriate system for scheduled inspections include structured checklists and defect reporting
