The Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) released Safety Bulletin No. 89 on 13 November 2009 about a series of incidents involving earthmoving equipment tyres and the operation of tyre-handling machinery. There have been seven fatalities involving the handling of tyres at various Australasian mines in the past few years. Many in the mining industry are not sufficiently aware of the hazards involved in working with earthmoving equipment tyres and safety procedures are not always followed. Earthmoving equipment tyres, rims and wheel assemblies must be regarded as safety critical items that need to be maintained by competent people in accordance with documented systems of work addressing all of the risks involved.
