  1. Selection of tyre and rim elements – to match site requirements and expected duty; 
  2. Pressure – providing for regular (ideally continuous) pressure monitoring; 
  3. Records – the absolute requirement for treating wheel assembly/component elements as safety-related items and controlling all information related to them – and using this to prompt/promote regular proof testing/inspection and replacement. 

Guidance is also provided on root causes of tyre and rim incidents and considerations made around identifying tasks on site which should be considered in the broader tyre and rim management framework.
