It's Brake Safety Week, which for most companies seems to be about selling you new products. Which is great, right? Nothing better than new brakes for improving safety, right?
Well, maybe. It depends on the training, actually. And so we decided to recognize Brake Safety Week by giving you guys this free 3-minute snippet out of our Air Brake Lesson, about how to do a pre-trip brake inspection. It covers both air brakes and hydraulic brakes.
The video is just a short clip from the full 30-minutes Air Brakes course. Available online or in-cab, it teaches all the parts of the air brake systems, including how to maintain them. It also discusses real-world and emergency use.
Please go share it with your drivers. It's free. It takes 3 minutes to watch, and about 3 minutes to do a pre-trip brake inspection.
