Most fleet safety activities focus on preventing road accidents and crashes. However, there are notable hazards for truck drivers while out of the cab.
Responding to a request from industry fleet safety managers, the U.S. Poultry & Egg Assn. (USPOULTRY) has developed a driver education and awareness video, “Driver Safety — Out of the Cab.”
“The purpose of this video is to help identify those risks in order to best prepare drivers for a safe work environment. While we acknowledge that specific operational procedures differ by company, the video contains general guidelines for driver safety,” said Paul Pressley, USPOULTRY executive vice president of industry programs.
The video addresses exposures to feed haul, live haul and hatchery drivers covering issues such as slips and falls, on-farm equipment hazards and exposures from overhead utility lines. The video can be used for driver orientation or refresher training.
The video is available free of charge to USPOULTRY members. Non-members may order the program for $200. Copies of the DVD may be ordered online here.
USPOULTRY is an organization representing the complete spectrum of today’s poultry industry whose mission is to progressively serve member companies through research, education, communication and technical assistance. Founded in 1947, USPOULTRY is based in Tucker, Ga.
