TITLE
Truck overturned
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
A driver had been attempting to position the vehicle where the customer wanted the concrete discharged. Due to mud and the steep hill, the vehicle tyres were sliding even with the Diff lock on. It was agreed to off load the vehicle on the hill. Having held the vehicle on the foot brake, the low air alarm came on, resulting in the spring brakes automatically being applied.

Shortly after the driver lifted his foot from the foot brake, (neglected to apply the parking brake) and disembarked from the vehicle. Whilst attending to the discharge chute, the air pressure built back up, the spring brakes started to release and the truck started to roll backwards.

LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
The driver tried running to the cab to stop the vehicle but as this rolled onto soft ground, the ground gave way, the truck tipped over, trapping his legs under the side impact guard.

Had he been either side of this area, when the truck turned over, he would have been killed. In this instance no one had complained about the site conditions, “if drivers have any concerns with site conditions, report this immediately to the local shipping office”, you will be supported. Hanson are consulting our vehicle suppliers on the feasibility of having an audile alarm system fitted, that will sound if the handbrake is not applied and the drivers door is open. This should be included in the Hanson Truck Specification in the future.
