Safety Notice – Rollover risk associated with the use of road vehicles in off-road applications in quarries

The use of any vehicle at a quarry will generally involve a risk of the vehicle overturning. Quarry edge protection should be designed to overturn a vehicle in order to arrest its progress if all other systems have failed.

An employee of a contractor was killed when the 4×4 road vehicle he was driving overturned on a haul road at a quarry. Although the operator was thrown clear during the incident, the roof of the vehicle collapsed.
