Vehicle Roll-overs are a Common Problem

Graham Marshall - Monday, December 24, 2012

This Safety Alert from APPEA demonstrates how easy it is to lose control of a vehicle when driving on oil-field roads.

It's been our experience that oil-field roads all over the world pose particular threats to drivers; whether it be from high-traffic volumes, the movement of large vehicles, use of roads by non-oilfield traffic, broken pavement, narrow roads, blown sand, blown snow, or other problematic weather factors like ice, fog or rain.

In all cases, the key to oil-field driving is to slow down, take your time, and plan ahead.

After all, it doesn't matter how quickly you get there, what matters is how quickly you stop at the end.
