Worksafe have put together a video to help educate those within the trucking industry about common risks and how they can ensure people go home healthy and safe.
When it comes to truck safety "data shows that more harm actually occurs off the road than on it". Therefore it's critical that all drivers have a proper induction to make them aware of the safety considerations for each site, including assigned traffic routes, loading/unloading procedures and pedestrian safety zones.
Some questions that you should ask yourself:
What is one thing you can do differently to make work safer for yourself or someone else?
How will this make your work safer?
Who do you need to talk to about what you are going to be doing differently?
Could this different way of working apply to other people in your business?
If so, who and how?
