Dangerous incident: truck rolled

Summary: An operator drove a truck out of the pit and in the process of turning the truck around, the truck rolled over. No injuries were reported.

Recommendations to industry:

  • Trucks should be travelling at appropriate speeds when doing U-turns.
  • Turning areas should be flat with minimal cross grade.
  • Ensure tyre pressures are correct and suspension systems are in good condition.
  • Operator practices should be periodically checked.
