Sites should have cease operations processes (Trigger Action Response Processes/Plans) in place for situations for when it is no longer safe to continue normal operations using mobile equipment.

Procedures in place for compromised operating conditions

Develop and implement a process to cease operations in situations where it is no longer safe to operate mobile equipment:

  • Failure of roadways e.g. slumps, washouts, sink holes
  • Actual or potential geotechnical failures
  • Fires and smoke
  • Floods
  • Precipitation: snow, sleet, rain, hail etc.
  • Dust
  • Temperature extremes
  • Infrastructure potential or actual failure
  • Potentially explosive(e.g. methane rich) atmospheres
  • Falls of ground
  • Seismic events
  • Loss of ventilation
  • Animals etc.

Training and assessment in requirements for vehicle operators, supervisors and management
