While traversing down the slope of an unmaintained off-road short cut in a government vehicle, three Mission Support Alliance (MSA) employees matrixed to CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company were injured when the snow plow attachment of the vehicle contacted the asphalt edge of a parking lot and the vehicle suddenly stopped. All three employees sustained injuries requiring days away from work; the driver of the vehicle, whose injuries were more significant due to not wearing a seatbelt, required surgery.
Lesson Learned: Short cuts and other off-road areas may contain unrecognized hazards, particularly for vehicles with attachments or other modifications. Clearly define expectations for driving off-road, and establish responsibilities to periodically inspect roads for short cuts or other at-risk conditions.
