A worker is inflating a large truck tire when its sidewall suddenly blows out. Had the tire been restrained in a safety cage, there would not have been a problem. However, no cage is used and the force of the blowout causes the tire to become airborne and strike the worker.
The following tips can help prevent serious or fatal injuries associated with tires and rims:
Workers need to be properly trained and supervised before being allowed to work alone on tires or rims.
Safety valves should be used on compressed air hoses to prevent excessive air pressures that could cause a tire to explode.
All heavy equipment tires must be deflated and have their valve stems removed before any work is performed on them.
