Layer Risk Controls to Help Prevent Workers from Being Struck by Mobile Equipment

Struck-by incidents can occur in any workplace where mobile equipment is used, and the risk is increased when equipment operators have obstructed views (blind spots). The best way to prevent these incidents is to use a layered approach to risk controls, where several different controls work together to minimize the risk to workers.

This bulletin provides information to help employers understand their responsibilities and control the risk. It is supplemented by a video to illustrate how obstructed views increase the risk.
