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
