Additional information about Injury Prevention for CMV Drivers - DVD Training
Release - 2017
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, professional truck drivers sustain more injuries keeping them off the job for longer periods of time than workers in any other industry. Ironically, many of those injuries occur during non-driving activities. In fact, most driver injuries are caused by unsafe acts, unsafe conditions, errors in judgment or environmental dangers.
This program is designed to help drivers avoid preventable injuries while on the job by recognizing and avoiding risks and adopting safe work practices.
After completing this program, learners will be able to:
Demonstrate how to properly mount and dismount their tractor trailer
Recognize safety precautions to take when conducting inspections and while stopped on the side of the road
Discuss positions and techniques to use while driving to help prevent long-term injuries
Explain how to properly load and unload cargo and move around the loading dock safely
