ROS-EF-01 Mobile plant design prevents interactions between flammable materials, fuel and ignition sources

The design of mobile equipment should:

  • Separate all potential fuel sources from ignition sources
  • Secure and contain liquid fuel sources
  • Eliminate solid fuel sources
  • Separate, shield or protect hot surfaces so they cannot ignite fuel

Mobile equipment should include systems that: 

  • Detect and mitigate any the loss of any combustible liquid
  • Detect actual or potential fires situations and provide shutdown and suppression systems 

Additional design elements may be required for underground applications including removing, as far as is practicable, flammable materials such as non-metallic parts and paints.
