Worker access onto front-loading equipment while trucks are out on the road collecting waste containers (as opposed to being serviced in the shop), should only be permitted for emergency, maintenance, service and repair work (not for operational purposes) with appropriate safety measures in place to protect the worker(s). See requirements outlined in multi-compartment recycling vehicle section b) of this guideline.
