Quad-Stack Truck

After the last few serious incidents, I thought I'd put up something a bit more light-hearted this week. I would love to see the series of incidents and decisions that led to this bit of craziness.

Insecure Pipe Load

Sent in by a reader a few weeks ago. From the email:

"This 9.5/8" casing had just left Gearhart's yard following inspection/re-coating for storage by Apache, the truck wasn't travelling fast by any means but had to stand on his brakes and give way at the intersection and the pictures tell the rest.

Driver luckily was only bruised and in a bit of shock."

Update: From a reader:
The  BHP Train Derailment, I googled it and it appears that it happen on its Newman line in the Pilbara.

The Importance of Walk-Around Inspections

This very scary photo was sent in a couple of weeks ago. From the email:

A crew working for a utility company found this child while conducting a walk around of the company truck the crew members were driving. We don’t want to think about what would have happened if the employee had gotten in the truck and drove off without doing a walk around. Please share this eye opening, bone chilling photo and experience with our work groups.

This crew has also reported children climbing into the back of company vehicles. Keep in mind children will be out of school on break so be sure to watch out for them!!

Just another reason for us to do the vehicle walk-arounds before driving off in our vehicles.
