13 Back-up Alarms Back-up Alarms (a) -When operator has obstructed view to the rear: Automatic reverse activated signal alarm Wheel mounted bell alarm Discriminating backup alarm covers area of view Observer (spotter) (c) truck must stop when unable to clearly recognize spotter’s signals All alarms above surrounding noise levels Automatic reverse activated at night

14 Windows Windows 56.14103(a) - If Windows are provided:
Made of safety glass or equivalent Maintained to provide safe operation Replaced or removed if damaged and obscures visibility

15 Fire Extinguishers Fire Extinguishers on Mobile Equipment
(a) - Whenever a fire or its effects can impede escape from mobile equipment or (b) can impede the escape of others in the area, extinguisher must be on vehicle or within a 100 feet of equipment Located to permit use Fire Suppression system can be substituted if it can be activated manually

16 Warning Signals Warnings Mobile Equipment Before moving any equipment: Sound a warning that is audible above surrounding area or Use other effective means to warn persons

17 Securing Movable Parts
Warnings Mobile Equipment When moving any equipment: Parts of equipment must be in travel mode Mechanically secured Getting Off Equipment Persons cannot get off moving mobile equipment Clearances Warning devices Devices installed and restricted area marked

18 Unattended or Not in Use
Securing Parts (b) - Equipment When equipment is unattended or not in use: Parts of equipment must be lowered to ground Mechanically secured Parking Procedures Equipment not left unattended unless: Placed in park and parking brake set, wheels chocked

19 Warning Devices Warning Devices 56.14208
When parked and creates a hazard When carrying load that project more than 4 feet beyond sides or rear Must have visible warning device (Red Flag) attached to end of load or person walking beside or behind load with flag or light Must use light in limited visibility condition

20 Movement of Buckets Movement of Buckets, Dippers, Booms 56.14210
Not be swung over Operator’s station on Mobile Equipment until operator is out of station and in a safe location Does not apply to equipment specially designed to protect operator from falling objects (FOPS)

Persons Not Transported in or on: dippers, forks, clamshells, buckets in beds of mobile equipment on the top of loads, with materials/equipment outside cabs, equipment stations between cars on trains, on leading ends to and from work areas on crowded equipment on conveyors

22 Transporting People Transporting People 56.9200(b)
Persons Transported in beds of mobile equipment when provisions are made for secure travel and means are taken to prevent accidental unloading if equipment is provided with unloading device when necessary for maintenance, testing or training and above provisions taken On conveyors when designed for such travel

23 Working in Raised Position
Blocking of Equipment Persons cannot work on top, under or from Mobile Equipment in a raised position until the equipment has been blocked or mechanically secured from movement provided with a functional load locking device or equivalent Repairs During Maintenance Blocked against motion/power off (lockout)

24 Berms Berms or Guardrails 56.9300(a) must be provided and maintained:
On banks of roadways where a drop off of sufficient grade and depth may cause a vehicle to overturn or endanger equipment operators Must be at least mid-axle height of largest vehicle Have openings for drainage

25 Berms Not Required Berms or Guardrails (d) may not be required provided that and elevated roadways are infrequently traveled and used by service or maintenance vehicles And locked gates are installed at entrance points Warning signs posted “Roadway NOT bermed” Delineators installed at intervals (3) to indicate edge Maximum speed limit is posted (slope,width,type) Road surface traction not impaired by weather

26 Tire Repairs Tire Repairs 56.14104
Before a tire can be removed, the valve cord must be partially removed for gradual deflation of the tire and persons must stand outside the potential trajectory of the locking rim of a multi-piece rim During inflation a wheel cage or other restraining device or stand off inflation device must be used
