Best Practices:
  • 30 CFR § 56.14207 – Parking procedures for unattended equipment.
  • Mobile equipment shall not  be left unattended unless the controls are placed in the park position and the parking brake, if provided, is set. When parked on a grade, the wheels or tracks of mobile equipment shall be either chocked or turned into a bank.
  • Maintain equipment braking systems in good repair and adjustment and set the parking brake (if provided) in order to prevent unexpected movement.  This standard applies to off-road and on-road mobile equipment used on mine property, including vans, SUVs, and pick-up trucks. All mobile equipment used on the mine site must comply with this standard.
