HELP OREGON’S REPUBLICANS IN THEIR PROTEST AGAINST PROPOSED CARBON BILL
As you may be aware, the fight against cap and trade legislation (HB 2020) is not over yet. Republican senators have left the state to deny democrats a quorum because democrat leadership have not negotiated cap and trade in good faith. They have protested against this bill that will impact everyone, including the general consumer. Cap and trade could cause Oregon’s trucking businesses and other industries to move out of state, pass the costs of goods to you, or go out of business altogether. They are taking a stand against HB 2020 for you and other Oregon families, so please take a minute to thank them. They NEED your support! Click on the link below to contact your legislators now. 

 

Safety 2-22-2019

I have recently observed several employees getting into and out of the cab of their truck WITHOUT USING 3 POINTS OF CONTACT!

PLEASE pay attention and face the cab whenever you are getting into your ruck or getting out.

This allows you to have a good handhold in the event your feet slip off the steps.

Consider if you are getting out, and are facing out, you are extremely vulnerable to falling from your truck, face down on the ground. ?

When you fall forward your hands may end up behind you, so now you may not be able to protect your face from hitting the ground!

Common injuries, from a fall like this are; Hand, Arm, Shoulder, Back, Knees or Head.

Please use 3 points of contact ALL OF THE TIME! Be Safe- Be the Pro

As Professional drivers there are several things you need to do every day while driving.  Here is the third of 7

#3 Maintain ONE lane;

Staying in your lane, with the exception of passing or positioning yourself for a turn, helps not only you but other drivers. Of course there are times when you need to pass or change lanes to effect a turn. Maintaining your lane is critical especially if someone else is trying to pass.

Be alert and drive safely.
