3.6 Road Driving 

z  Pay attention to the stability of the front and rear of the machine during operation, since work 

equipment may block vision at the front while the load is concentrated on the back wheels.   

z  Be sure there is no fog, soot, sand or dust cloud that may block vision. 

z  Examine the working area and the road condition. 

Check whether there are holes, blockages, slosh or 


z  Understand the objective of the operation; be sure 

to understand the meaning of the flags, signals, and 

labels before the operation begins. 


3.7 Prevent Crushing or Cutting Body 


z  Do not put your hand, arm or other parts of your 

body into movable parts of equipment. If the 

working equipment is in operation, the clearance 

will change and this may lead to serious damage or 

personal injury when standing too close. The 

engine must be turned off and the working 

equipment must be locked if people have to work between the moving components. 

z  Make sure the supporter and the accessories are 

correctly set when some one works under the 
machine. Do not use the hydraulic tank as support. 
The accessories may go down and result in an 
accident when the control system moves or the 
hydraulic tubes leaks. 

z  Never do any adjustments when the machine is 

operating or the engine is working unless there is 
an outstanding reason, such as an emergency. 

z  Stay far away from any rotating and moving parts.
