When approaching large mobile equipment, do not proceed until you communicate and verify with the equipment operator your planned movement and location. Provide radio communication systems between vehicles and large mobile equipment.
Ensure, by signal or other means, that al persons are clear before moving equipment.
Minimize situations where smaller vehicles need to approach large haul trucks (e.g., arrange for haul truck driers to have supplies available at the pre-shift meeting place, rather than delivering supplies to the truck.)
Do not driver or park smaller vehicles in a large truck's potential path of movement.
Equip smaller vehicles with flags or strobe lights positioned high enough to be seen from the cabs of haulage trucks.
