3 Ways to Improve the Safety of your Drivers and
Products
2
  • Training your drivers on general vehicle
    maintenance and proper loading will maximize your
    resources while empowering drivers with the tools
    they need to stay safe.  

3
  • It is of utmost importance that drivers learn to
    load and secure loads properly, no matter what
    type of cargo is being carried. Various accidents
    occur when a load is not properly secured,
    including

4
  • Products flying out of truck and becoming a
    hazard to other drivers, loads shifting causing
    the vehicle to shift, which can not only cause a
    serious accident but will result in loss of
    product and possible lawsuits, among other
    issues.

  • Of course, unsafe driving habits like distracted
    driving (eating, texting, changing music station,
    etc) will also put any driver, load and company
    at serious risk.  

7
  • Whens the last time you took a driving class?
    Probably when you got a licence or a traffic
    citation, right? Many drivers are unaware of
    basic traffic and safety practices simply because
    theyve never been taught properly.

8
  • Setting up your drivers with materials on safe
    driving, warning them about back-to-school
    traffic and severe weather will not only keep
    your drivers and cargo safe, but make the roads a
    safer place for everyone as well.

9
  • Give your drivers special training on operating
    their company vehicle while under load, whether
    it be people or products. Make sure every driver
    has on-the-job training on how to drive under
    load.

10
  • Actions like braking and accelerating take a bit
    longer, which can cause the driver to lose
    control of the vehicle if they arent careful to
    be aware of the following general surroundings,
    checking all mirrors and staying calm and focused
    on the road.

11
  • Make sure your drivers are trained on how to
    strap, block and brace exterior or cargo van
    loads according to the weight and type of load
    being carried. Loads that are too heavy for the
    vehicle cause can the brakes, drivetrain and
    suspension system to function improperly.
