Stabilise and access alternative fuel vehicles

Control Measure Knowledge

Stabilising or accessing alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) may compromise, damage or result in contact with fuel lines, high-voltage cables or fuel cells. These components are normally sited in protected areas under the vehicle or within the vehicle panels; however, they may become detached during a collision.

The resting position of an AFV after a collision may be unconventional, due to its weight distribution. This should be considered when attempting to stabilise an AFV.

Using conventional techniques may cause damage to fuel cells or other components. Therefore the techniques used should be tailored, taking into account the position of the additional hazards present in an AFV.
