New Flier Offers Steps to Keep Tractor Trailer Drivers Safe at Destination

Safety Practices Once Tractor Trailer Drivers Arrive at a Destination

Whether at the warehouse, dock, or construction site, drivers can be exposed to struck-by, crushed-between, and other safety hazards. OSHA and the trucking industry developed a new flier that addresses the most common hazards for drivers after they reach their destination; parking, backing up, and coupling (attaching) and uncoupling (detaching) vehicles. Drivers need to be trained to safely couple and uncouple truck trailers from the rig, park vehicles on level ground, set the emergency brakes, and place wheel chocks between the tandem wheels of the trailer to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
