The danger of reversing HGVs
Most on-site vehicle accidents and injuries occur when HGVs have to reverse. If possible, reversing should be actively discouraged, but if it is something that is unavoidable, then a safe reversing procedure needs to be put in place, with appropriate supervision where necessary.
Accidents can happened if a forklift is being used to load an HGV trailer. If another HGV is reversing and hits the side of the forklift, the results could be fatal for the forklift driver.
It has become standard practice for forklifts to be driven onto the public road in order to load HGVs. This can present its own dangers, because of other traffic using the roads.
