ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
The new Ford Connect vans being used by Concrete and Technical staff have the vehicle jack positioned behind the drivers seat. In the event that it is needed to change a wheel, the driver can be placed into a hazardous situation, especially when on a motorway or dual carriageway due to having the door open and the driver unable to view on-coming traffic.

The jack is secured and takes time to remove. It is suggested that it is taken from it’s location behind the seat and placed behind the passenger seat or load compartment.

LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
If the puncture is on the passenger side, then when traffic is heavy, always climb over the passenger seat to exit the vehicle!

If on the drivers side, if considered too hazardous to attempt to change the wheel, call the retained recovery / breakdown service and await assistance from outside the vehicle in a safe location.

On all occasions when a puncture occurs, TAKE ONE and decide if it is SAFE to change the wheel! ALWAYS wear your high visibility jacket / waistcoat BEFORE exiting the vehicle.
