The purpose of this document is to provide examples for implementing management actions to prevent (not supress) mobile equipment fires.
AS5062:2016 Fire Protection for Mobile and Transportable Equipment is the applicable standard to follow. MDG 1032 is also a useful reference document.
AS5062 includes a section on Fire Risk Reduction. However, the essential actions to reduce the likelihood of a fire (Fire Prevention) are often not included or adequately considered in the risk assessments that have been reviewed.
This document is intended to assist sites to overcome this gap. It is not intended to provide any information related to fire suppression, which has been very well researched and actioned in other locations.
