We hope your Monday isn't being too terrible for you. Today our #mondaysafety concern is about loading and unloading procedures. * Do you know where the #dangerzone is? (No, not Tom Cruise in a fighter jet) * The danger zone is around your truck and can be as little as 10 feet or as much as 50 feet. When locating a danger zone, you should consider the cargo that is being loaded and unloaded and the method by which it is moved. You should also consider any potential issues that could arise. * Once your danger zones are identified, have pre-planned escape routes for emergencies. You or your workers may only have seconds to retreat from danger. Know where debris from a trailer load may fall and then establish routes to escape that should avoid harm. * Remember that sometimes the closest and safest escape zone is underneath the trailer.
