A dozer carrying out preparation work slid off a walk back and working bench near an excavator. The dozer operator appears to have misjudged the corner and driven off the edge. The dozer operator was not injured.
Following the investigation of several incidents in which tracked dozers overturned, the NSW Resources Regulator identified a range of contributing factors and published a safety bulletin. Recommendations on managing risks to dozer operators can be found in safety bulletin SB19-01 Rise in dozer incidents putting operators at risk
