TITLE
Learning Points form Pennyvenie Double Fatality
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
The tragic deaths of two maintenance fitters has focused attention on a range of key issues involving the interaction of heavy mobile plant and small soft-skinned vehicles. The pdf that is attached to this incident alert is a presentation that reconstructs the lead-up to the double fatality and gives an insight into the multiple learning points for quarry operators, concentrating on organisational behaviour; behavioural safety; heavy mobile plant design; and the huge consequential costs to an organisation.

A fuller illustrated account was published in the February 2012 issue of ‘Quarry Management’ which also looks at the incident in the context of the EU Machinery Directive; European and international standards; associated regulatory activities; and concludes with a plea to the heavy plant Manufacturers to take full account of the whole range of criteria that comprise the international ‘Safer by Design’ initiative on http://www.Safequarry.com.
