Whitepaper: I can See Clearly now- the "Blind Spot" is Gone- ISO 5006 / 16001 Compliance
Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle to Person (V2P) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) interactions are still one of the most significant OH&S mitigation challenges facing many Industries where vehicles, infrastructure and people interact. LSM Technologies has authored a technical white paper "I Can See Clearly Now- The "Blind Spot" Is Gone- ISO 5006 / 16001 Compliance".
In Queensland Mining / Quarrying, more than 23% of HPI Hazards (2017) are related to Vehicles, as reported by the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.
Also, according to the DNRME “Vehicle interactions are the second-highest cause of serious accidents and high potential incidents in Queensland mineral Mines and Quarries".
Thousands of Vehicular interactions (in all Industries) occur each year with many resulting in Injury and Fatality - not just in Mining / Quarrying but in industries that utlsieCranes, Ports, Forklifts, Transport (On / Off Road), Road Construction, Waste Vehicles, etc and predominately a result of restricted Operator / Driver Visibility.
The ISO 5006 (16001) Standards for Earthmoving Equipment-Operators Visibility was established over >20 years and made a full Standard in 2006.
The ISO 5006 clearly states: “The purpose of this International Standard is to address operator’s visibility in such a manner that the operator can see around the machine (360 deg) to enable proper, effective and safe operation that can be quantified in objective engineering terms".
