Annex RAS3: USING THIS CHART
· Using past experience or by estimating workload, calculate the expected annual distance each vehicle and trailer will travel.
· Determine the type of work (lightly loaded, general, arduous, or off-road).
· Draw a line up from the relevant distance on the lower scale until you come to the relevant line...A,B,C or D.
· At that point, draw a line across to the left. The figure on the left scale will show the relevant interval between safety inspections for that vehicle.
· Always round down the interval figure....for example, if the relevant interval for the vehicle = 7.5 weeks, make the inspection interval "every 7 weeks".
· Example: A truck travels 85000km per year on general haulage (Line B) duties. Draw a line up from just to the right of the 75000km mark on the lower scale until you meet Line B. Draw a line across to the left. The result is approximately 7 weeks. So, that truck should have a safety inspection every 7 weeks.
1 The interval between safety inspections for all vehicles should fall between lines A and C or A and D as appropriate. If a vehicle travels more than 200000km per year, use the intervals recommended for 200000km.
2. The chart is only a guide and it is the responsibility of the operator to increase these frequencies should operating conditions demand it. Do not exceed the manufacturer's recommended inspection intervals! If the chart above shows that inspection is required every 6 weeks, but the manufacturer recommends inspecting all or part of the vehicle every 4 weeks, the inspection interval must be 4 weeks.
3. Vehicles which are only used for part of the year, or which have been out of service for some time, should be inspected before they are used again.
4. Trailers not permanently coupled but in regular use need to be assessed on their conditions of work and anticipated mileage.
5. Where there are doubts about what interval to choose, the operator is advised to make more, rather than fewer, checks.
6. The Off-Road/Difficult Conditions category: Difficult conditions can be encountered by vehicles operating on unmade road conditions such as experienced in the interior of Oman or in quarry, building site or land reclamation work where such conditions result in accelerated component wear and vehicle damage. Equally vehicles engaged in the carriage of corrosive substances or engaged in work on premises where such substances exist should also be included in this category.
7. These frequencies apply to light as well as heavy vehicles.
3) PDO logo shows vehicle inspected as per PDO specification.
4) Sticker size: 9cm X 6cm & on the dashboard behind the
driver’s door or on side of the driver’s door – not on windscreens
Trailers: The RAS Inspection sticker shall be
placed in a suitable appropriate pouch or plate
on the trailer frame
Annex RAS5: Vehicle Spot Check List
1.1 Application 1.1.1 This spot check list is used within the Company, by non-professional vehicle inspectors when carrying out roadside checks of vehicles.
1.1.2 The list only covers part of the requirements of SP2000 and must not be seen as diminishing the set requirements. This guidance note is designed to comply with current standards. If in doubt, or in cases of conflict, refer to SP2000.
In case of the slightest doubt or query, always contact the MSE Department. We would rather have 100 false alarms than one dangerous vehicle.
1.2 Usage 1.2.1 Users of the spot check list may add additional requirements, however it is suggested that they check with the Corporate Road Safety Team to ensure the validity of the additional points. Report cases of conflict or inaccuracy to the Corporate Road Safety Team for review and correction as required. This check list is designed for use in the interior, on the coast a number of the requirements listed are not applicable.
