Rollover Madness PDO contractor roll over accident rate DOUBLES in the first month of 2011 Will you or your contract be next??
Rollovers cause death In the whole of 2010, PDO suffered only 32 rollovers, an improving trend down from 50 in 2009 and a high of 71 in 2007. So why in January this year have we witnessed 5 rollovers already?? This will be 60 for 2011. The majority of PDO’s road fatalities result from rollovers, 2 of our colleagues lost their lives last year in one rollover. Rollovers are easily avoidable Rollovers are simply not acceptable
Galfar 5 th January (Non work related) Driver started a journey without journey plan authorisation from Qarn Alan to Fahud at 4:30pm to collect personal luggage. 20km from Khazan, he lost control and rolled over. Lucky to be alive…..
While returning to camp after a days work the driver drifted over on to the left road shoulder. He over-steered and rolled it. He was lucky to survive. Al Turki 6 th January
While descending a steep bank at Zareef the driver lost his control over the vehicle and it rolled over to right side of the road. Another lucky driver……. Al Turki 23 rd January
A landcruiser carrying 3 people was 30km from Fahud. Whilst driving too fast the vehicle skidded on a wet road and in an attempt to regain control back to the road he over steered and rolled. They were also lucky SLB 23 rd January
NCC 25 th January Driver took sharp bend too fast and he over corrected…. then rolled over. Two people seriously injured
Why do people have rollovers? Inappropriate speed for the road Lack of concentration Driving whilst fatigued Lack of observation Inappropriate speed at junctions Inappropriate braking and reaction Tyre blow outs
9 A simple but deadly combination - speed - sudden change of direction - braking whilst steering All of these are what the driver causes. Why do vehicles rollover? The classic is over compensating by harsh steering after drifting off line The Classic ‘S’ Curve
10 How most people roll their vehicle Mistake 2: reacts by steering hard left Mistake 3: over steers left so then has to steer hard right Mistake 3: over steers left so then has to steer hard right Mistake 1: Driver loses concentration, drifting to the right He begins to realises this !! He begins to realises this !! Mistake 4: brakes heavy to reduce speed Roll!! Roll? The Rollover is sadly inevitable…….. The classic “S” curve rollover
