LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
Immediate Actions:

The lorry was righted and given an inspection before being driven to the vehicle owner's premises.

Key Learning for the Future:

Before any vehicle is righted, the following points must be followed -

- DO NOT use an FEL or 360 Excavators.
- Only use LOLER certified machines with LOLER certified lifting equipment.
- The driver who operated the vehicle during the tip-over must not be allowed to drive any company or any other vehicle on site, until cleared in writing by a doctor (A&E, GP or Occupational Health).
- A vehicle that has overturned may not be driven on a company site – nor used for any company task until cleared by a commercial vehicle garage – in writing.
