Heavy Vehicle Rollover Prevention Program

RolloverPrev

Did you know there were over 400 heavy vehicle rollovers in WA in 2016!

Main Roads WA is actively promoting the Heavy Vehicle Rollover Prevention Program in an attempt to assist the transport industry to reduce rollover risk and improve road safety.

Given the significant number of heavy vehicle rollovers that occur in Western Australia each year, the Heavy Vehicle Rollover Prevention Program is extremely relevant to the transport industry in WA.

VicRoads in conjuction with the Victorian Road Freight Advisory Council, and the generous assistance of numerous members of the transport industry, produced the program on DVD. You can get a copy by contacting Main Roads WA Heavy Vehicle Operations on 138 486 or by emailing hvo@mainroads.wa.gov.au. The DVD is a must watch for any transport operator and staff involved in transport operations.

Main Roads WA has also created a Rollover Prevention page on the Main Roads WA website. It contains useful information and tools such as the Static Rollover Threshold (SRT) Calculator that can be used to help reduce rollover risk.
