A roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) truck went out of service and needed to be towed to an on-site repair facility. Towing of the RO/RO truck to the maintenance facility was performed using a half-ton pickup truck and 30-foot tow strap. While traveling to the shop at approximately 3 - 5 mph, slack developed in the tow line and the RO/RO truck ran over the strap, causing the tow vehicle to stop suddenly. As a result, the RO/RO truck rolled into the pickup truck, causing minor cosmetic damage. This task has been performed previously many times without issue; however, as the task was not proceduralized, all possible hazards may not have been identified as required by the Washington Closure Hanford Integrated Work Control Program (IWCP).
Prior success in completing tasks does not ensure future success.
