First off, congratulations to everyone in the Trucking industry! It’s not an easy task to spend hours away from loved ones, spending driving for long hours as well as driving massive automobiles through rush hour traffic. It might not be classified as a prestige career, but it takes a strong personality and , yes, some skill for getting this task completed. So, if you’re not members of the Trucking family, the next moment you’re behind one of these machines moving slowly up an certificate of conformity ascent or you are squeezed next to one trying to make a turn Be patient and leave your groans and curses for dangerous road ragers and give them some time!
That being said I’d like to share this article to raise awareness about protection for the dedicated truck drivers. If you follow these tips in your mind, you are more likely to get home safely to your family and friends and also contribute to the safety of your fellow drivers and their passengers out on the road. Here we go: 5 road Safety Guidelines for committed Truckers:
Tipp #1 – Stay healthy! It’s possible that you don’t be the most active person at work and sitting in one place for long periods of time will take its toll on the overall condition of your health. So exercise when you can or perhaps perform an exercise routine in breaks. Lots of water is essential and it is important to stock up on healthy snacks to take on the road Do not eat fast food regardless of how tempting and practical it might be. Healthy bodies mean an attentive and healthy mind. This leads me to the following tip.
Tip #2 It may seem simple, but it’s frequently overlooked. Do not use drinking or taking drugs prior to or during work. You must be 100 100% focused while on the road and regardless of how relaxing a pint of booze can be, please refrain from drinking it! If you feel you need a boost, a good cup of coffee can help.
So now that we have you all fit alert and active Let’s get your car in good working order:
Tipp #3 Make sure that your vehicle has been thoroughly inspected before each trip. If you’re not the driver of the vehicle, ensure the company that you work for is up to date with all vehicle inspections and services. Also, make sure that the vehicle is fitted with all of the necessary safety equipment like fire extinguishers and reflective triangles to prevent breakdowns that could occur. And, please give your vehicle a thorough wash along way – clean up before hitting the highway (this applies to inside the truck and outside, as you don’t want any obstructions to roll behind the wheels). Make sure your truck displays the correct and compulsory signage.
Tip #4 – Prepare. If you do not have a radio control in your truck, make sure that you’re armed with a charged cell phone in case of an emergency. It’s also not a bad idea to include an initial Aid kit, rather be safe than sorry! Make sure you have plenty of water and healthy snacks – you are never too full. Healthier foods pump you full of the good energy that is what you need!
5 Tips Most important, for the safety of yourself and others – keep an eye out! Be aware and don’t make risks while driving – even if it’s an intentional risk! Make sure you follow the rules for a safe and secure journey. If you’re stopping at traffic lights or parking at a stop be wary of individuals who are suspicious. Don’t carry more money than you’ll need. Also, double be sure that your vehicle is secured!
