Information:

NSW DPI has conducted a review of unplanned movements of shuttle cars, where the shuttle car has moved in either a forward or reverse direction contrary to the operator’s intention. This review encompassed the period July 2005 to 31 March 2008. There have been 28 events recorded in the NSW DPI database. Problems with the shuttle car footswitch contributed to 22 of those events. Shuttle cars operate in an underground environment with restricted space. An unplanned movement of a very small distance has the potential to cause death.
