Caused by:

  • Underestimate of wheel assembly weight results in equipment damage or loss of load e.g. ballasted tyre
  • Tyre handling and maintenance equipment is the wrong size
  • Planning of maintenance tasks insufficient to prevent in-service (violent) tyre/wheel assembly failure

Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • BI.00.53 Introduction of Equipment to Site Process
  • BI.01.01 Trained, Competent and Authorised Tyre Maintainers
  • BI.02.01 Skilled and experienced personnel are accountable for specifying and selecting tyre maintenance equipment and tools
  • BI.03.02 Protocols for all aspects of wheel assembly maintenance and tyre repair
  • BI.03.06 Wheel assembly protocols include component cleaning, inspection and identification.
CFM02.51 – Maintenance required on non-standard wheel assembly is poorly executed
