Close Call/Serious Incident

Safety Alert Type: 
Log Hauling
2.5 km on King Edward Lake Rd.
Date of Incident / Close Call: 
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

One of our loaded logging trucks was following another loaded truck down King Edward Lake Rd in dusty conditions. The first truck notified our driver of a dirtbike coming up the road. But due to the thick dust he wasnt able to see the dirtbike and the dirtbike almost ran into our logging truck.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

Ultimately ,the dirtbike was not authorized to be on a posted logging road, but expect the unexpected. Also extra caution should be used when travelling in dusty conditions where visibility is reduced.
You never know what you'll encounter!!
