Summary: A haul truck was parked up and shutdown due to rain. The operator remained in the cab. After about an hour, the truck rolled forward 30 to 40 metres before the operator was able to stop it. The mine investigation determined that a component in the braking system was installed incorrectly.

Recommendations to industry: Following any works, particularly on safety critical systems, equipment should undergo a form of commissioning to verify the quality and operation of the work performed.
