The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) says it will release a series of industry bulletins following the first Heavy Vehicle Fire Roundtable meeting in Brisbane 13th May 2019 (see Linked in news post) and as reported in the ATN news article dd 29th May

The Regulator had launched a probe after an increased series of Prime mover fires in the past year.

A number of common issues were identified during the roundtable that suggested that most heavy vehicle fires were preventable but required actions by a range of responsible parties, NHVR notes.

Some of the key issues discussed during the roundtable included:

  • wheel-end fires (wheel bearings, brakes, etc.)
  • wiring, electrical systems and components
  • engine bay fires – oil and fuel leaks
  • trailer and load fires.

Having provide OH&S mitigation solutions within heavy Industry for >15 years, LSM Technologies Pty Ltd are proud to contribute their experience and expertise to such initiatives that not only saves lives but also can provide cost- downs in equipment damage and increased productivity.

A panel of industry experts met to discuss the potential causes of heavy vehicle fires and how to minimise their occurrence and consequences.
