Forestry operations take place in some of the harshest and most isolated locations of Australia. Workers are exposed to many risks like, ‘hang-ups’, being hit by falling objects, exposure to extreme temperatures, fatigue and working alone at night – just to name a few!
Another significant risk, with the potential to result in catastrophic outcomes, is fire. Plant and equipment run at high temperatures, they can carry large amounts of flammable oils and fuels and tend to accumulate highly flammable debris in and around hot areas. Workers are surrounded by flammable materials like wood chips, sawdust and trees and they are often working several kilometres away from any emergency assistance. These risk factors make having an effective vehicle fire protection system installed and maintained, absolutely essential.
Engine compartments, electrical and hydraulic systems can all be targeted by Dafo vehicle fire suppression systems to minimise risk and maximise protection in the event of a fire. With AS 5062:2016 certification and proven robust performance around the world, Dafo vehicle systems now deliver the best value for money on the Australian and New Zealand market.
Contact Dafo Australia today to discuss Dafo vehicle fire suppression systems, to mitigate against the catastrophic events following a fire that has been sparked by your plant and equipment.
