Are You in the Line of Fire?
The Line of Fire Program is designed to encourage worker engagement. It begins with a plan followed by the roll out of activity packages where feedback and worker discussions are facilitated and follow-up is conducted. Supportive actions include conducting hazard hunts and work site inspections as well as ongoing continuous improvement of the program.
The Line of Fire Program contains the following:
- Implementation Procedure
- Readiness Checklist
- Inspection Forms
- Tools and Supporting Forms
- Activity Packages
The program is structured into three categories:
Stored energy including pressure releases
Striking hazards including dropped objects
Crushing hazards including hand injuries
Line of Fire - Vehicles and Mobile Equipment
This video is designed to encourage conversations about line of fire hazards in relation to vehicles and mobile equipment. Please review the YouTube video description for helpful instructions on how to use this video, questions to ask and talking points to review with your workers.
