I'm assuming this wasn't at an Australian mine as there are no berms at the ramp edge?
My comments exactly..... where are the berms at? I hope the management at that mine gives their head a shake......
What's a berm? LOL. This looks like it occurred in Africa, where they don't believe in any kind of safety.
I received pics of the accident a few years ago from a coworker. From what I understand this is in a mine in South America. In the country where this happened, berms were not required along haul roads. Please remember that berms do help, but if a haul truck is going full speed a berm may not stop it.
Now if u zoom in on this pic u will see guard rails along the ramp.
