TITLE
Loading haulage vehicles – guidance documents
ARTICLE
Conscious of incidents involving lorry overturns whilst discharging their loads, Aggregate Industries decided to take action.

Investigations by the company’s health and safety advisors identified a number of factors which contribute to vehicles toppling over, from the consistency of the material being loaded, to overloading and partial tipping off.

In addition to an existing hauliers’ rules document, Aggregate Industries has developed a comprehensive set of procedures to be implemented at all sites in northern England. It includes guidance for managers, haulage drivers and contractors; rules to control the loading operations of potentially problematic materials; and tipping area guidance.
