Background

Site dumpers are involved in around a third of construction transport accidents, causing many deaths and serious injuries, particularly to drivers. The main causes of dumper accidents are:

  • overturning on slopes and rough ground and at the edges of excavations, embankments etc;
  • travelling when a high-lift skip is in its raised position;
  • incidents where a pedestrian is run over by the front wheels of the dumper;
  • driver thrown from vehicle while travelling over rough ground;
  • driver error due to lack of experience and training, eg accidental operation of controls.
