Tramming of Excavators

  • Does spotter maintain a minimum of 20m distance, back/in front of the equipment and not on the side when Tramming?

  • Does spotter use signal whenever wants to speak to operator at the same distance and operator turns the engine off before spotter approaches the equipment?

  • Does the mast in the horizontal position when tramming from block to block and in vertical position when Tramming from hole to hole, provided that ground conditions permit?

  • Does the trammining path kept free from obstructions?

Working Near Slow Moving Mining Equipment

  • Is the safe distance of 20m maintained?

  • Has a review conducted before each shit begin and confirm communication signals between equipment operator and worked on foot?
