Info TS 02/20Vehicle Rollover and Other Serious Vehicle Incident Prevention

It is critical that the managers of gas companies and transportation companies ensure that they have processes in place to reduce the risk of rollovers and other serious vehicle incidents, to avoid any impact on human life, human health, material and environmental damages.

Vehicle incident investigations have shown that the majority of these incidents are avoidable.  Many of the causes are related to lack of training or knowledge; people’s ability to react to high risk situations; human behaviour, for example non-compliance with rules or safe driving practices; inadequate organisation and management processes.

This safety information provides advice on reducing the risk of a vehicle rollover and other serious incidents on the road and is intended for managers, drivers and other transport function personnel who are involved in transportation activities or driver training.
