Establish an appropriate safe distance from road vehicle safety systems

Control Measure Knowledge

Due to the hazards they present, working near vehicle safety systems should be avoided if possible. The exact deployment range distances of vehicle safety systems, including airbags, should be obtained from the vehicle manufacturer.

Objects should not be placed near undeployed vehicle safety systems, as they may become projectiles in the event of system activation.

Due to the potential impact of certain radio frequencies on vehicle safety system sensors, handheld radios should be kept at least 10cm away from identified systems.
