You will need to comply with this standard if you are the manager or principal employer at a mine, and you intend to use earth moving machinery in the business. Each earth moving machinery unit used at your mine must be fitted with a roll over protective structure which complies with this standard.
Earth moving equipment includes a unit modified to perform other service functions, but does not include earth moving machinery that is only used underground.
This standard specifies the requirements for roll-over protective structures and falling-object protective structures. It is intended to apply to operator controlled earth-moving machinery where the design allows for a seated operator.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
