Control Measure Knowledge

This control measure should be read in conjunction with the control measures for the hazard: Flammable or explosive atmosphere


Identifying the design and construction materials and systems that are present in the mode of transport provides key information to personnel when carrying out operational activities.

Some material types can be recognised because of their common location, industry standard markings or through data provided on mobile data terminal (MDT) systems. However, if materials or the location of systems are not marked, it may be necessary to seek information or advice from:

  • Plans of the mode of transport
  • Industry sources of information
  • Specialists
  • Tactical advisers (TacAds)
