Root Cause Analysis

< Vehicle Inspection and operator’s condition >

  • The daily inspection of the dump truck was conducted by operator before starting the work including breaking system and there was no defects found.

  • The dump truck has safety facilities like rear camera, frontal mirror, reversing alarm and seat belt.
  • The condition of operator was in normal.
    • The operator was fasten seat belt.

Root Cause Analysis

  • Misunderstanding of working method : Main cause of the incident is misunderstanding of "where " with "when"

According to stock pile advisory,

“Secondary” Method of Stockpiling involvesdumping a load directlyover the crest of the pile. For this method to be performed safely, adequate berms must be maintained ~ ….

It is critical to ensure thatmaterial is not removed from the toe of the pile when dumping is taking place at the top of the pile. → Applied

“Prohibited” Method of Stockpiling involves ~ …. ~

wherematerial has been removed from the toeis prohibited. → Not applied

system and management related causes
System and Management Related Causes

Root Cause Analysis

  • Lack of risk assessment: Risk assessment of dumping work did not make complex working condition which clearly identifies all potential & practical risks (for example, multiple visible inspection for stable repose angle from the pile upside and downside)
  • Lack of real time inspection system : Real time inspection needs to check the risks of working condition and unsafe behavior depending on the working environment and weather condition
  • Inadequate SOP: SOP of dumping work is in place but there is inaccurate application for dumping work due to misunderstanding of stock pile advisory
  • Insufficient communication : Lack of communication between inspector and dump truck operators about the risks observed by inspector
behavior related causes
Behavior related causes

Root Cause Analysis

  • Mistranslation of the Advisory : Stock piling methods are not correctly translated to cause incorrect application of stock piling method.
  • Insufficient training of risk management : Workers are not skillful of risk recognition and assessment because of insufficient training of risk management including refresher training.
  • Not fully understanding of the Advisory: Especially stock piling method is not fully understood by workers even though repetitive training due to the mistranslation.

Key Lessons Learned

  • Workers should clearly understand Standard and Advisory (e.g.If youtake materials at the toe of the pile direct dumping is strictly prohibited)
  • In order to set up a SOP, it should be based on the Group Safety Standard & Advisory fully understood by workers.
  • The risk management system including inspection, risk assessment and communication system should be working effectively on-site to control not only formal & visible risk but all potential & practical risks in real time and regular monitoring should be followed to make sure the system is working
  • All employees and non-employees that operate or ride in any mobile equipment or vehicle shall fasten seat belts at all times.
