Information:

Tyres, rims and wheel assemblies are safety-critical items that must be maintained and used correctly to achieve acceptable levels of risk. Inadequate earthmover tyre and rim maintenance carries considerable inherent risk of personal injury and death, as confirmed through several tyre and rim-related fatalities in Australasia over the last few years.

This safety bulletin aims to revisit some of the key hazards, associated risks and known improvement strategies. Mining operators, contractors, maintenance providers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM), designers and suppliers of tyres and rims must ensure that effective safety and health management systems (SHMS) and processes managed by appropriate personnel are in place to achieve safety in tyre and rim management.
