Information:

Many high potential incidents over recent years at Queensland mines and quarries involved brake systems on highway and industrial trucks, and on heavy earthmoving equipment. Some have resulted in serious injury, or even death, and contributing factors included:

  • using equipment not fit for purpose, such as on-highway trucks not designed for mine site terrain, and overloading
  • not considering site operating conditions, such as steep grades, operating speeds, operating cycles, or site layout
  • poor brake system maintenance and performance monitoring
  • continuing to use equipment even after poor brake performance has been detected
  • lack of information and training on brake operation and maintenance requirements for operating / maintenance personnel.
