Mining vehicle ergonomics checklist in arctic environments -for OSH personnel 

riskpreventionimage

 

Instructions

This checklist can be used for checking if

- a vehicle fulfils ergonomic and safety requirements in technological point of view (section 1)

- the work has been arranged so that it can be performed safely and fluently in employee point of view (section 2)

 

The checklist can be used by occupational health and safety personnel together with a foreman and a vehicle operator. Specific references for standards are given at the end of the checklist.

 

Sections 1 and 2 can be fulfilled separately. Assessments in both sections are made by “in order” / “not in order” principle. In case of “not in order”, specific notes and improvement proposals should be fulfilled separately.
