Dangerous incident: Truck loses control

February 13, 2018 Tara

Summary: A dump truck lost control while travelling down a ramp. The dump truck was empty with the road conditions wet from recent water cart activity and a passing storm. The dump truck slid out at 90 degrees and crossed the centre line before stopping. No injuries were reported and there were no other vehicles on the ramp at the time of the incident.

Recommendations to industry: All mine operators should review:
how a change in road conditions are communicated to all the workforce.
how statutory officials monitor change and their corrective actions to change.
