Leak of flammable liquid or vapors may lead to fires.

Figure 3-4. An information processing model Detection requires the hazard to be capable of being sensed (seen, heard, smelled, tasted or touched) by the worker. 2 examines the properties of basic human senses that allow an object to be detected. Even though an object may be detectable, the worker may not pay attention to it. 3 discusses attention, how attention may be disrupted and how it may be improved. Chapter 3 - Identify Hazards 51 Once an object has been attended to, it is recognized by comparing it with memory, decisions are made and stored in memory, and responses are selected and generated.

The 12 ft diameter tires of these vehicles are typically inflated to 90 psig and are mounted on multi-rim wheels. When the tires are serviced the rims must be removed in sections; this requires the loosening and removal of as many as 60 bolts. Given the immense size of these tires, even the slightest residual pressure (remaining in a tire) can create a large outward force pushing the tire off the rim. This can kill or seriously injure nearby workers. Mining operations worldwide have frequently experienced such incidents.
