HAZARD ALERT

Safety Alert Type: 
Log Hauling
Date of Incident / Close Call: 
2007-11-21
Company Name: 
Stones Bay Holdings Ltd.
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

There were 2 near miss road incidents yesterday. In both cases, loaded log trucks were on their way to the mill for the first trip of the day. Both log trucks were being complacent and not calling any miles as they did not think that there was going to be anyone on the road.
At different locations the log trucks met crew cab pickups on their way to work. Both pickups narrowly missed the log trucks and avoided driving off of the road. When the pickup called to see why the log truck had not called kilometers, he replied “Oh well. You are the first that I have seen on the road this morning!”
When traveling on bush roads, expect the unexpected. Call all loaded kilometers regardless of day of the week or time of the day. Stay focused with your mind on the task, and don’t become complacent.
