Western Australia Government Incident Report from January 2008. Fire and entrapment hazard on mobile plant (salt harvester) – absence of a second egress.
While attempting to escape from the harvester, the operator was unable to exit by the cabin door due to the heat from the flames. In the absence of a second egress, the operator was forced to break the front windscreen of the cabin, exit the machine via the front access platform and use the cross travel conveyor to jump across onto a full salt trailer, which was moved into position to allow this.
