Control measure knowledge

If on-site machinery has the potential to cause harm to fire and rescue personnel or other responders, it may be necessary to restrict or prohibit its movement.

On-site machinery operators should be made aware of the presence of personnel, and the extent of restriction or prohibition in place. 

Strategic actions

Fire and rescue services should:
  • Ensure that information about on-site machinery and its use is included in Site-Specific Risk Information (SSRI)

Tactical actions

Incident commanders should:
  • Consider requesting that on-site machinery movements are restricted or prohibited
  • Ensure on-site machinery operators are made aware of the presence of fire and rescue service personnel
