Tracked plant on slopes 

18-02-2019 16:43

We sometimes operate tracked plant on slopes without a full understanding of the risks and factors of safety involved. As a result, a number of incidents have occurred involving tracked plant operating on slopes. These incidents were caused by failure due to sliding, overturning or inadequate ground bearing capacity. Wherever possible, we should avoid operating on slopes. However the nature of the sites we work on means this is often unavoidable. This guidance has been compiled to aid the understanding of these risks and to help conscious decision making.
