Dangerous Equipment - Vehicles

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Over the years of working in the safety field, I've come across numerous examples of unsafe equipment in use.

So over the coming week I'm posting pictures of some of the most "infamous" examples of unsafe equipment.

Each photograph can be used in its own right as a daily "safety moment" to highlight the dangers of using unsafe equipment.  Information for use in the tool-box talk is shown below the image.

I've also put the pictures into a Power Point slide show to be used in a tool-box talk.

To access the Dangerous Equipment tool-box talk, visit the blog on Saturday 3rd March 2012 .

Today's example of dangerous equipment shows a vehicle I recently noticed being driven around on site.  Quite a shocker!

Always remember to use the Think 6, Look 6 hazard management process:

Hazards = the kinetic energy involved in the vehicle's motion once it starts to move.  Kinetic energy in the form of stored pressure within the tyre itself;

Triggers = the damaged wheel rim is the main trigger here;

Potential incidents = tyre burst, roll over or vehicle collision; and explosive release of pressure causing people to be struck by flying rubber;

Consequences = death or serious injury in a vehicle accident, equipment damage, travel delay if a simple "flat" tyre;

What should you do to control the hazards?
