Operators in heavy vehicles fail to keep appropriate distances from fixed and overhead structures, caused by:

  • Vision / visibility issues (poor sight lines)
  • Not following routine operating instructions e.g. driving with elevated tray
  • Not following specific directions e.g. signs, supervisor instructions, work orders etc.

 This Credible Failure mode is addressed by:

  • BI-01D.01 Trained personnel who are supported by an appropriate and up-to-date training management system
  • BI-01S.01 Clear operator performance management expectations supported by an active and consistent performance management process
  • BI-02S.04 Regular checking and maintenance of infrastructure and fixed plant
  • BI-03S.05 Infrastructure protection – placement of barriers and/or warning devices to prevent unwanted vehicle interactions
  • BI-05S.01 Regular and consistent application of performance management processes
  • BI-05S.03 Hazard and incident reporting process that generates value adding corrective actions
