Company Name: 
North Aspect Contracting Ltd.
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Common flat tire was changed. The next morning the lug nuts were re-torque. That night while driving to another location for work, the convoy of vehicles stopped for a break. Bill noticed the lugs were loose and in some cases almost off! The lugs were re-torque and no injury occurred.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

After a flat tire the lugs need to be checked often, not just visual, but with a tire iron!
