Line of Fire means being in harms way; either through being caught in or between, struck by, or through released energy.

A review of e-obs data 2023 shows Line of Fire was a factor in 32% of the observations raised across the industry last year.

  • Use your Toolbox Talk to ensure your team understand the hazards, the harm they can cause us, and how we can control them.
  • By continually Dynamically Risk Assessing our environment, we can remain spatially and situationally aware whilst identifying any new hazards that have arisen due to changes in circumstances.
  • We can prevent potential injuries to ourselves and colleagues by rectifying and reporting any unwanted conditions we observe. Reporting unwanted conditions allows our organisations to act on them and communicate any applicable learnings.
