Owners, operators and drivers face unique challenges when it comes to selecting the best fall protection methods and equipment that will ensure the safety of all workers. By law, drivers must be protected when they are required to access the roof of trucks and must be trained on safety procedures and equipment to eliminate the most common source of falls in this industry.
The top three leading causes of work-related injuries account for more than 85 percent of all nonfatal injuries involving days away from work, according to the National Safety Council's Injury Facts. In each case, the transportation and warehousing industry is most at risk with typical lost time of 5 to 12 days. Injuries from slips, trips and falls actually surpass those found in the construction sector.
Drivers can be seriously injured even by a fall of a short distance, such as slipping on a metal dock plate or jumping from the back of a trailer. Drivers can also face long-term injury resulting from repetitive stress on joints caused by such actions as jumping down from a cab or trailer.
Our Fall Prevention course for the Transportaion Industry has been designed to address and offer insight into the most common hazards and explore the best equipment options available today that will allow owners/operators to create a fall prevention program to protect all workers.
Theory and practical training provided. Laminated wallet cards provided to successful participants at the end of class. This course can be customized to address the specific fall hazards found on your vehicles.
