Part 19 Powered Mobile Equipment

Section 269 Guards and screens

Activities such as brush clearing or the collection of golf balls at a driving range may expose powered mobile equipment operators to injury as intruding or flying objects e.g. branches, rocks, etc. may enter the operator cab. Where there is a significant potential for operator injury i.e. the nature of the work or work area make it highly likely that such objects will enter the cab, the employer must ensure that the operator is protected. The section lists several methods of protecting the operator.
