The stockpile which the driver drove too quickly from - note the acute turning point
LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
It is believed that the driver was ‘embarrassed’ to discover he was about to tip on the wrong stockpile so he began to rush the job to correct his error. He drove from the softer stockpile onto the harder yard surface too fast, causing the dumper to bounce. Rather than following the precautions and guidance laid down in such an instance (ease off the throttle and keep the vehicle straight) he continued to accelerate whilst cornering.

Further investigation also found that he had not passed an accredited assessment for this piece of plant.
Managers are reminded to ensure that all plant drivers (in house and sub – contractor) have passed an approved assessment programme (e.g EPIC) or are being suitably supervised, before allowing them on site.
