This group of failure modes arise as a result of the equipment designs/conditions which impact operators/pedestrians ability to achieve separation.  It includes:

  • Poor sightlines from equipment – including where aftermarket features are added that interrupt a view
  • Lack of visibility of/for pedestrians entering a work area
  • Layouts and traffic arrangements made without reference back to the sightlines of the intended vehicles working in the area
  • Failing to consider the moving blindspots of light and heavy vehicles when approaching an intersection (allowing them to remain un-sighted of each other)

The business inputs which address these types of failure modes are presented.
