Information:

Several recent high potential incidents involving mine/quarry vehicles have prompted the issue of this Safety Bulletin.  Brief details of some incidents are given below:

An off-highway dump truck on hire ran-away, a few minutes after it was parked and travelled about 100 metres along a haul road.  It went off the road and fell down a precipice causing extensive damage to trees along its path and then rolling over.  The truck was a write-off.  The incident had the potential to kill anyone on its path.  The truck had been parked on slightly sloping ground.  The parkbrake had been applied fully, but was ineffective.
