Where Injuries and Property Damage Meet
Trailer Doors Seem Safe
Trailer doors seem simple enough, right? Yet they take and deliver the most damage, either because they're not secured before backing or because the wind takes them, or cargo falls against them. It can lead to banging the door against the dock, crashing into the driver, or worse. Expensive damage or injuries can result.
This new lesson — Safe Operation of Trailer Doors — focuses on trailer door safety, and all that entails.
Getting Into and Out of Trailers
In addition to learning how to do a pre-trip inspection of trailer doors, your truck drivers will learn how to safely climb into and out of trailers. For medium-duty trucks that make a lot of stops, they may be equipped with a ladder, fold-out stairs or lift gate. Or your driver may be delivering to a place without a dock.
